May 1, 2020
To all United States Aquatics Sports Affiliated Organizations, As much of the country remains in flux as this devastating COVID-19 global pandemic continues, we have officially made the decision to cancel this year’s USAS Convention, scheduled for September 22-27, 2020 in Jacksonville, Florida.
Many factors have weighed on this decision, namely the overall uncertainty of the circumstances, the likely inability for us to gather safely as a large group or travel across the country, and the effect this ongoing situation has on our ability to plan, coordinate and execute this extensive and interactive in-person assembly.
We thank you for your understanding and wish everyone and their families continued good health.
