Submit Your Bid for Eastern Regionals

The 2017 Regional Tournament sprang from a new type of partnership. There was some thinking outside the box by our regional committee. Then there was a region full of dedicated officials and volunteers that stepped up and made it happen.
We can do it again. Maybe at your ski site! The regional partnership model may open up the opportunity to host regionals at some great 3-Event sites that don’t feel they have the man-power to make it happen. The regional tournament is an opportunity for you to showcase your site, allow new people to experience a great event on your turf and to bring new life to your lake.
Please consider submitting a bid for the Regional Championships, or start making plans for the future. We’ll be happy to help you with planning to organize a great event.

Clarification Regarding AWSA Records

According to Richelle Matli, Rules Committee chairperson for the American Water Ski Association, effective July 11, 2013 and going forward, the following rules interpretation will be used regarding submission of national records. This interpretation will follow the stipulations of AWSA Rule 1.07.

AWSA 14.01: Only skiers with U.S. citizenship may set records; this includes those with dual citizenship. However, a competitor who skis in international competition for another federation shall not be eligible to set a record for two years following their performance in that international competition.
