EVENT INFO
ABOUT THE EVENT

IMPORTANT WEATHER NOTE: Due to the inclement weather in the region on Sunday, the SAA Cup has been condensed to a Saturday schedule. Please see the new schedule below. 

WHAT: A fundraising water polo game! Whether you are on a water polo team or never played before, join us for an afternoon full of fun, family and playing. Swimmers choose to participate as a player. Teams will play together throughout the event. Individuals who would like to participate will be placed on teams with other individuals or incorporated into existing teams. This is an invite team event. 

In addition to the water polo tournament, we will take place in the USA Waterpolo movement #FLOPFRIDAY. Started by the USA women's water polo team, #FLOPFRIDAY has become a fun way for athletes to unwind after a week of hard practices. Athletes who raise their suggested minimum of $100 can automatically participate. All other athletes, spectators, and parents can participate if they donate an additional $10. However, there will be limited slots so athletes who raise the suggested minimum get the slots first. Thanks to USA Waterpolo, our #FLOPFRIDAY event will be showcased on all of their social media outlets!

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
