Sanction Form

If your event is on the national divisional calendar there is no requirement to complete the sanction request form as the calendar is automatically sanctioned by WAWA. However, if your event is outside the calendar, please complete and submit the sanction request form and submit to our office. Ideally, we would appreciate two weeks’ notice to sanction an event, however, if your event is a last minute inclusion, we should still be able to accommodate.
