About the UFBA Waterway Challenge

UFBA Waterway Challenge logo

The Waterway Challenge has been an enduring UFBA tradition since it was first introduced back in 1885. It's an opportunity to put hose-running and pump-operating skills to the test in a fun and competitive environment.

The Waterway Season is made up of four regional or two Island events annually and one additional national event held every two years.
