Sanctioning and Insurance

Forms and information for sanctioning with the AMA

The paperwork for holding an AMA-sanctioned event is simple. AMA-chartered clubs or organizations just download, fill out and return the below forms with their sanction fee. The group can then receive all the benefits of hosting an AMA-sanctioned event, one of which is the signalling to the local community and others that their event embodies the principles of fairness, responsibility and competitiveness that characterize AMA-sanctioned events.
