Mission Statement

The North American Tournament Association, L.L.C. (NATA) was formed in the interest of promoting safety and financial responsibility. Emil DeLuca, a long time advocate and participant in competitive tournament fishing, created an organization where responsible groups will have the ability to associate for a common benefit.

By safety we mean we provide you with sample tournament rules in simple formats for you to download for use for your sanctioned events. We also provide you with sample liability release forms to protect your group and sponsors.

By financial responsibility we mean that we provide a $1,000,000.00 fishing tournament and event liability insurance program to protect your groups sanctioned events. This includes tournaments, meetings, fundraising activities, and banquets.
