NCAA & Collegiate Club Rules Test

Both the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) require officials to pass a rules test to be eligible to officiate.

Note, there are differences on how officials must handle taking the test(s) to be eligible to call either varsity or collegiate club games.



Officials who wish to call varsity games (and club games) during either the men’s and/or women’s seasons must register with Arbiter and pass the rules test located on that page.  Officials should access the page by CLICKING HERE and registering for the Arbiter site.  Officials working CWPA Varsity Games are eligible to have their membership covered by the CWPA but must register through a special portal that can be obtained by contacting the Assistant Commissioner at
