What forms are required if I am participating in a Third Party Sponsored Event?

The member school does not need to submit any paperwork if the event is being sponsored by a Third Party entity.  The Third Party entity will need to contact the FHSAA office and enter into a contractual agreement prior to the event. 

What constitutes a Third Party Special Event?

Policy 7.6 - Third Party Special Events
7.6.1 Member schools that participate in an event held within the State of Florida hosted by a third party must notify the FHSAA of their intent to participate. Sanctioning and any FHSAA fees for the event are the responsibility of the third party hosting the event, not the participating member school. It is the responsibility of the member school to insure the event in which they are participating has been approved and sanctioned by the FHSAA.

7.6.2 Third Party events held in private or corporate facilities, or on school facilities where the member school is not fulfilling “Host” duties as defined in Policy 7.1.2, require a direct contract between the FHSAA and Third Party for sanction approval.

7.6.3 Any event hosted by or held on a college or university campus must be directly sanctioned by the College, University or third party with the FHSAA. If a member school is affiliated with the college or university and typically uses the college or university facility as their home facility, normal sanctioning approval stipulated in Policy 7.2.1 shall apply.

What forms are required from the Third Party Sponsor?

A Third Party Event sanction application (found below) must be completed by the Third Party Sponsor prior to the FHSAA sanctioning their event.
