The GrassRoots Series is one of USA Water Ski’s most exciting nationwide programs. It’s a great place for you to experience what skiing or riding against others feels like. Don’t worry about what others think. Forget the pressure of serious competition. Make it an opportunity to have fun and learn. Imagine that! This can then be the first step to entering the competitive side of our sport, if that is what you want. You get time on the water. And personal instruction. There are free T-shirts, trophies, music, games, prizes and more. You show up and get to have fun. How can you beat that?
The GrassRoots Series is designed to be a fun, family-oriented experience for all water sport enthusiasts. USA Water Ski looks to grow organized towed water sports at the grassroots level by providing a turnkey package that encourages LOCs to host GrassRoots events through budget relieving incentives, and offering various marketing tools to help attract new participants to their events.
