The COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions have put our season on hold. This is a very difficult time for all of us.  Your health and safety are most important, and we thank all of you who are helping where they can either as a front line worker or by doing your part to social distance. We do not yet know the full impact of COVID-19 on our 2020 programming, but we promise to keep you informed.

In the meantime however, if you are able, we would like you to consider renewing your membership with Water Ski & Wakeboard Alberta. As you know, a large part of the funding we use to deliver our programming comes from Alberta Sport Connection and is driven, in part, by our membership statistics.

Thank you
