About the Teams
The Alberta Wake Teams represent athletes who have a desire and commitment to excel in Wake Sport disciplines. In 2017, for the first time, the Provincial Teams will include wakesurf and hydrofoil, in addition to wakeboard.
Being on the team grants you many opportunities for skill development. These include: having unique early season training opportunities with professional coaches; the chance to become an official; ongoing coaching and mentorship opportunities; involvement in the wake sports community at events; and support for attending events and training.
Team members get to know other young athletes with the same love of the sport, and build lasting friendships.
In January of each year athletes will be invited to submit an application to participate on the Competitive or Development Wake Teams. Athletes are required to complete a Sport Resume as part of the application process. A selection committee will review all applications and consideration will be given to contest participation, placements from previous season, trick list and goals.
