About Team Hoyt New England:
Throughout over 1100 events during their forty year racing career, Dick and Rick Hoyt touched the lives of many around the world. Hailing from New England, it is only fitting that this duo inspired the creation of Team Hoyt New England.
With a goal of ensuring that athlete riders across the New England states have an opportunity to roll with the wind much like Rick Hoyt continues to do, Team Hoyt New England aims to pair athlete riders with teammates from across New England. The goal is to not only carry-on the legacy of the Hoyts, but to also ensure that no single person is ever left on the sidelines.
About the Aqua Riders of Holland:
The Aqua Riders are a non-profit, family oriented, competitive water ski show team located in Holland, MA. We volunteer our time and talents and work together as a team to put on incredible water ski shows for everyone to watch! We have Friday night shows at our home site on Hamilton Reservoir during the summer and compete in the Eastern Region Show Ski Competition against other water ski teams in New England.
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.
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.
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.
