Sanctioning Information

Due to ongoing safety and health concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the NAIGC will not be sanctioning any in-person events through January 1st, 2020. Virtual sanctioning requests may proceed as usual. Please also consult our “Return-to-Play” guidelines for up-to-date health and safety recommendations as you return to practice in the gym. If you have any questions or concerns, please email

If you are interested in having your meet sanctioned, please review the Event Sanctioning Policy and Safety and Equipment Standards. Please note required application timelines and the requirement to use certified judges at sanctioned competitions. Benefits of sanctioning your event include free NAIGC awards, access to our scoring software, access to discounted hotel bookings, insurance support, potential access to our Healthcare Team, formal certification by the NAIGC, and real time support from an NAIGC representative.  If you are interested in having an event sanctioned, please submit a Sanctioning Request Form to at least 30 days prior to the event. Please also make sure the event is listed on the NAIGC website by going to Meet Creation and selecting “Create New Event”.

Approved Sanction Requests will get an email from the NAIGC with instructions on how to proceed. All event participants must register on the NAIGC website and sign a liability waiver in order to compete. To sign the waiver, participants must first register on the NAIGC website. The NAIGC will also send updates on competitors that still need to sign the waiver as the event approaches.
