Life on the water
Why Should I Join?

Who Can Join?
Anyone who wants to ski or even just be a part of a fun group can join. You don’t have to be a great skier, but before participating in a show, skiing members must have a few core competencies for safety’s sake. Some of these basic skills include being able to perform a two-ski dock start, have the ability to participate in a basic skiing act as designated by our Show Director, and be able to swim unassisted by a flotation device. Our ski team has lots of members who are more than willing to help you learn the basics so that you can quickly be incorporated into a show.
No great water ski team can survive with skiers alone, though. You can be an important part of our team as a boat driver, spotter (i.e. rider in the boat), announcer, sound personnel, dance choreographer, scriptwriter, stage actor, costume designer, seamstress, or any of the other administrative positions on our team.
There is no age limit to join the Carolina Show Ski Team. We currently have members from age four to over 60! Members under 16 must have a parent or guardian also join the team as a supporting member.
