Team Skiing Event Comes To AWSA in August

22 Jul, 2016

At the American Water Ski Association's mid-winter board meeting last January, the board approved team skiing, an idea created out of the organization's Special Interest Group Committee.

"This is very exciting stuff and we look forward to how this format might spark interest at all levels of skiing and spark attendance at regionals and Nationals," says Jeff Surdej, AWSA president. "Team skiing has proven to be a format that attracts new skiers and retains current skiers, both show skiing and collegiate water skiing are the only sport divisions with growth over the last five years, which is quite an accomplish considering the water ski recession we seem to be in."

Thirty-eight teams from across the nation will compete at regionals for five spots at the 74th GOODE Water Ski National Championships, Aug. 8-13, at Broadside Harbor in Caldwell, Idaho.
