2020 ALBERTA JUNIOR WATER SKI TEAM
AND ALBERTA DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
ALBERTA JUNIOR TEAM AND DEVELOPMENT TEAM
Water Ski & Wakeboard Alberta (WSWA) is pleased to announce the details of its
2020 Alberta Junior Team (AJT) and Alberta Development Program (ADP).
Each season, the Water Ski & Wakeboard Alberta Water Ski Team Committee (STC)
will name Athletes to the Alberta Junior Team (AJT)
and the Alberta Development Program (ADP).
ALBERTA JUNIOR TEAM
The objective of the AJT is to support the ongoing development of Alberta’s most promising
competitive Athletes, to aid their participation at Provincials, Westerns, and Nationals, as well
as to prepare these Athletes for the potential of being chosen to ski for Canada at international
tournaments, such as the CanAm Challenge, PanAmerican Championships, and Jr. Worlds.
Selection to the AJT is a natural progression from participation on the ADP,
although participation on the ADP is not a prerequisite.
Members of the AJT will generally, but not always, already have established coaching relationships
and will already be somewhat familiar with the training required to compete Provincially, Nationally,
nd Internationally. One of the goals of the Junior Team is to facilitate access to a holistic approach to training.
ALBERTA DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The objective of the ADP is to provide a fun and developmental training framework for Alberta Athletes
that have the skill, drive, potential, and aspiration to compete in sanctioned tournaments in Alberta.
The ADP is intended to be the next step in the progression following participation in Rip ‘N Ride or similar programs.
One of the main purposes of the ADP is to introduce Alberta Athletes to a formal,
structured training and give them further exposure to tournament water skiing.
