The Sub-Aqua Association (SAA) is delighted to announce the affiliation of the British Octopush Association (BOA).
In the last 18 years, the SAA and the British Underwater Sports Association (BUSA) have been working together in partnership for the benefit of the sport. Recently changes in rules and expectations in CMAS have required a more formal recognition of this partnership.
In the UK the SAA represents CMAS - the Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques.
Therefore, BUSA will through mutual agreement conclude their role to represent Underwater Sport in the UK and this will be continued by the SAA with formal affiliation agreements to each of the underwater sports.
Through this first affiliation agreement the BOA members will be provided with access, recognition and support to underwater hockey recognised by CMAS. In addition, BOA members will have access to obtaining Sports Licences to participate in international games.
This agreement represents the ongoing spirit of partnership between two organisations responsible for developing our sport in the UK and world-wide.
