Junior Development at Regionals!

We have a great evening of fun planned for our juniors this Thursday evening from 6pm – 9pm at The Castle Fun Center – take a look at the website at http://thecastlefuncenter.com/.

All juniors are invited for fun, activities, pizza and ice cream. Parents are welcome to join in for the pizza and ice cream. Please RSVP for the party at this link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f054cabaa29a5fa7-juniors1

Parents who want to purchase activity passes for themselves can do so for a discounted price of $17.99 (payment can be made onsite at Regionals at the Junior Development Tent).

Stop by the Junior Development Tent at Regionals on Wednesday afternoon during registration, and all day Thursday. The tent will be between the two lakes, and close to both start docks. Juniors can check in to pick up their t-shirt and get their picture taken for the guidebook. Special thanks go out to this year’s Junior Development Sponsors – Goode Skis, Kaleidoscope Imprints, Twin Lake Ski Club, Coble Ski Club, Coble ProStar by MasterCraft, and Peace Love & Waterskiing!

This year we are encouraging juniors to help out with volunteer tasks at Regionals with the Super Beast Challenge. Check it out at the Junior Development Table!

Parents and others can check out the FUNdraising activities including a raffle, equipment exchange, and a selection of water ski and East is Beast themed merchandise – all to benefit Junior Development.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Do you have t-shirts left over from your tournaments or events? Donate them to the Junior Development t-shirt sale. Event t-shirts are always some of our most popular items.

Donate you old water ski gear to the Junior Development Equipment Exchange Bin. Here is how it works: Bring your old wetsuits, bindings, gloves, handles, skis … drop it off at the used equipment exchange bin – look for the big blue bucket … and let’s do an equipment sale! You donate the equipment, others snag the equipment and put $$ in the jar. – all proceeds go to Jr Dev!!!!

Any questions or to volunteer to help out, contact TG Powell by email or at 703 395 7499, or stop by the juniors tent at Regionals.

2018 Rule Change Summary

The changes noted below will go into effect for the 2019 ski year beginning the day after AWSA Nationals.  Effective August 12th, 2018.

Summary of 2018 Rule Changes

Rules 3.02A/10.06: W4/W5 Align W4/W5 age divisions with IWWF. W4 will become 45-54 and W5 will become 55-59. No changes in jump speeds are included in this proposal. (Note – these changes would go into effect after 2018 Nationals).

Rationale: There is a two year difference in these divisions between AWSA and IWWF. This change would allow the women to continue to slalom at the faster speed (34mph). Jump speeds were not considered at this time, but will continue to be reviewed.   Continue reading
