Competitive significance and test event for Toronto 2015 Pan American Games
This 2015 UANA Cup serves as the water polo test event, an important aspect of pre-event preparations, for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games. Volunteers who have applied to work at the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games are encouraged to participate in the UANA Cup, the official test event for next year’s major Games. This will be a fantastic opportunity for TO2015 Water Polo volunteers to prepare for next summer. This event has also been designated as the America’s official qualifying tournament for Kazan 2015 FINA World Aquatic Championships.
