We are happy to announce we will be kicking off our 2024 season with a FREE Learn to Ski event at Point Breeze Marina in Webster on Saturday, Jun 1 from 8:30am-noon.     Come learn how to ski, find out more about our organization and then head up to Point Breeze for an amazing lunch with fantastic views of Webster Lake.   

Skiers will be able to learn from licensed instructors and certified drivers.     The only thing you will need to bring is your bathing suit, towel and a desire to learn to ski!     The Webster Water Ski Collective will provide the boats, the gas, the ropes, and the skis!    

This event is for ABLE BODIED PARTICIPANTS ONLY – Please check our other events for Adaptive Ski Opportunities!

Cancellation Policy:    We strive to fill all of our events, and will request a 72 hour notice prior to the event of a cancellation.     The 72 hour window will allow us to contact someone on the waitlist or try to fulfill the spot that is being vacated.     

Life Jackets:  Life jackets MUST be worn by all participants while they are in the water or on the docks.   No person can be on the docks without a personal floatation device with the exception of the boat drivers.    We do have many different sizes of life jackets available for participants, but highly encourage people to bring their own if they have them.     We will conduct a safety evaluation of all skiers prior to their ski run to make sure the jacket properly fits and is secure.   

Questions?: Any further questions may be directed toward our Director of Adaptive Skiing at Adaptive@WebsterWaterSki.org

Event FAQs

What do I need to bring?

All participants should bring their own bathing suit, towel, sunscreen and snacks to the event. A folding/portable chair is also recommended. If the skier has there own life-jacket, that is also recommended, however there will be jackets on hand for those that need them. Skis, Ropes, and all other water ski equipment will be provided by the Webster Water Ski Collective for this event.

Can non-participants watch?

Yes- we will allow for non-participants and parents to watch from shore.   Due to insurance restrictions, only approved volunteers and participants will be allowed to handle equipment or be in the water or boats during the event.   

What about Insurance? Are you covered if anything goes wrong?

Insurance will be provided via USA Water Ski and Wake Sports, whom have a rich history of sponsoring water ski tournaments and water sport events. Each participant and volunteer will need to be a USA Water Ski for that day of the event, and USA Water Ski offers a one day pass for $10 that will be covered as part of the registration fee. Any participant that needs a day pass may get one at the event, and must sign a waiver form. The insurance covers us for general liability as well as for any injuries that might take place. Safety is always our #1 goal and we will have a designated certified safety official on site in addition to our certified instructors and boat drivers to make this as safe and fun of an experience as possible for our participants and guest.

Can I ride in the boat as a caregiver?

We highly discourage this practice as per our insurance rules only members of USA Water Ski and our staff may ride in the boat.  Changing out riders in the boat also slows down the event signifigantly, so we try to avoid this unless absolutely nesassary.    In certian special situations, we may allow a parent to ride in the boat if the participant sufferes from high-anxiety, and only after the parent/caregiver has filled out a insurance waiver and only if the boat driver allows it.     Anyone in the boat must also have a personal floatational device on them at all times.    All of our boats are owned personally by our volunteers, so the boat owner has the final say on who is allowed in their vessel.
