Hosting an AAA Sanctioned Event

Who can run an AAA sanctioned event?  Any person who has commitment and devotion to the sport of armwrestling can apply for sanction approval for tournaments.  AAA has prepared rules and guidelines for hosting sanctioned tournaments.  We will be very happy to assist you in preparation and advertisement of your event.

Armwrestlers, in this country, should have the alternative to choose from several events to attend for each weekend.  The tournaments should offer uniformity, good management of time, and fellowship of the sport.

If, there is no AAA State Director to serve as liason, then correspondence can be made directly with the AAA.  If you  would like to be considered for hosting an AAA sanctioned event, and need any assistance, contact Karen or Frank Bean at 423-272-6162 or Email :
