Seawolf Athletic Association Priority Points System

Purpose:
The Seawolf Athletic Association Priority Points system is a tool for allocating benefits providing a systematic, orderly and equitable process to prioritize seating requests, postseason tickets and other benefits. The bottom line? It rewards loyalty and financial support of UAA Athletics.

Priority ranking is used to fairly allocate the benefits of supporting the Seawolves.  Points will be assigned during the 2013-14 Season for implementation during the 2014-15 season and beyond.  (e.g. priority in: seating selection, preferred parking (Fall 2014), access to postseason tickets, etc.).

Priority points accumulation begins with the 2009-10 season.  One time historical points are available for select categories upon request.

The Point System:
For every $100 you contribute to UAA Athletics, you will receive one (1) point. Points are awarded each year on a cumulative basis. To honor past contributions, points will accrue from the last four years of donations to SAA beginning in 2009-10 season. Donations to the UA Foundation benefitting Athletics will be awarded based on historical records.

·         To receive benefits through the SAA Priority Points System, an entity must be an active current year donor.

·         Points are calculated on a per account basis.

·         Current-year benefits and priority points are determined based on the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30)

·         Points are non-transferable.

·         Non-purchased tickets are not eligible for priority points. Only purchased tickets qualify for treatment as a season ticket.

·         Accounts credited for donation and purchaser’s names must be consistent with the names of the buyers of season tickets and donor information.

·         The privilege to benefit from the priority points is not transferable. An exception is that a surviving spouse may continue point privileges for his or her personal use only. The surviving family member may not transfer points to any other individual.

·         A one-time transfer period will enable those who currently purchase tickets to begin their own account without losing their current seating location. 

·         Pledges to the UA Foundation to benefit Seawolf Athletics will qualify for Priority Points in the year that the pledge is made.

·         Seawolf Athletic Association members will receive priority over non Seawolf Athletic Association members.

To receive benefits from the Seawolf Athletic Association Priority Points System, an entity must be an active Seawolf Athletic Association member.
