AWSA Clarifies Two Items At Board Meeting

Two items that were clarified at the American Water Ski Association’s board of directors’ meeting on Aug. 6, 2018 were 1.) Clarification regarding Level 9 and 10 overall; and 2.) Clarification regarding Level 10 overall skiers who have jumped on a 5-foot ramp.

1.) Clarification regarding Level 9 and 10 Overall:

3.03F4: TOURNAMENTS WITH PLACEMENT: Skiers with a Level 9 or 10 qualification in one or two events and skiing in a tournament with placement, such as Regional or National tournaments, may ski in the Elite division for placement and must also ski a second time in their age division event, for Overall score purposes only, if desiring to compete for Overall placement.

This does not preclude a skier who has individual rankings below Level 10 in one or two events but want to compete in Overall Elite and also age division for placement in those single events.

2.) Clarification regarding Level 10 Overall skiers who have jumped on a 5’ ramp.

While AWSA rules state OM jumpers will use either a 5.5’ or 6’ ramp, jumpers who have achieved a Level 10 status will be able to jump on a 5’ ramp. This was approved by the Rules Committee earlier.

IWWF allows a 5’ ramp and AWSA will follow. Rule approved at BOD
