The online registration Web site will first ask for your active USA Water Ski membership number in order to register. If you do not have an active membership, you will be directed to the Join USA Water Ski page, where you must purchase a membership before registration can begin. Please note: Membership purchase requires system to overnight batch-file before registration recognizes your new membership. Membership begins at $35 and is good from one year of purchase date. Membership may be used at other USA Water Ski events. Event registration is $100 and includes one banquet ticket for Saturday night.
The Cable Wakeboard National Championships also will serve as team trials for the 2010 U.S. Cable Wakeboard Team, which will compete in the 2010 IWWF Cable Wakeboard World Championships, July 16-18, in Neubrandenburg, Germany.
You do not have to be a professional rider to be selected to the U.S. Cable Wakeboard Team. Selections can be made from the Boys, Girls, Junior Women, Junior Men, Masters, Open Women and Open Men divisions. Team members receive a grant to help with travel expenses. Selections will be based on membership to USA Wakeboard, ability to win a gold medal in a respective division, and availability to compete. The IWWF and USOC non-doping rules will be in effect. All athletes who wish to be considered for the U.S. Cable Wakeboard Team should contact Janifer Ellis at JaniferEllis@aol.com.
