Water Ski & Wakeboard Alberta has many options for grassroots programs
to get kids/adults on the water skiing or riding.
Our WSWA Clubs and Schools are very key in the success of delivering these programs
Enjoyment of the sport and having fun is a key component.
Our entry level programs introduce children to
basic ski techniques and skills and basic safety rules.
Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada's skill development program, called Rip 'N Ride,
for young skiers and riders will guide kids thru the appropriate skill progression,
provide a solid foundation and knowledge base to build children's athletic abilities.
Rip ' N Ride has 5 levels and starts with safety, basic dock skills, understanding equipment
and getting out of the water on skis or a board.
When all the skills and levels of Rip 'N Ride are completed,
skiers and riders are ready to enter local competitions.
Check the 2019 Calendar for upcoming Grassroots Programs (coming soon)
We are offering the Foundations Course on May 4-5 Weekend.
This course will teach you how to teach beginners so then
you can coach your club members or skiers at your lake.
