About Us

Welcome to the United States Amateur Tug of War Association (USATOWA) website.

Our mission is to provide a website that is designed to educate, inform and celebrate current and future individuals wanting to participate in the little-known competitive sport of TUG OF WAR.  Tug of War within the United States can trace it early roots back to the time of the first immigrates from Europe where Tug of War was, and still is today very commonplace.

Our mission for the past forty-five (45) years and well into the future is to provide the information, structure and good governance necessary for the well-being and development of the sport of Tug Of War within the United States of America.  It is our intent to prepare athletes, coaches, judges and officials with the necessary skills and information they need to compete successfully, at the world level in accordance with the Tug of War International Federation known as TWIF.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of our Executive Board Members or individual Tug Of War clubs!  Come check us out!
