Additional Information

  • You can find your personal ratings and events worked on the USA waterski homepage (see previous email for more information).
  • If something doesn’t show up for an event/tournament you will need to contact the Chief Official immediately.  To prevent further confusion, make sure when you work as an official that it is recorded in the computer and it is recommended that you check at the end of the tournament as well.
  • One person on the team should collect all the screenshots for the entire team to be sent in one email to your chairperson.
  • Only collegiate tournaments will be counted for points, though we encourage you to stay involved and help at summer tournaments as well!
