Support Staff (non-skier): Membership Rate – $75/Yr
If you are a Support Staff person (non-skier), that doesn’t mean that you aren’t a valuable asset to our team. You can participate in Team and Show activities as a non-skier member. Enjoy the fun of being in the show and participating in Team events at a reduced dues rate. Non-Skier members may not ski in any practices and/or shows. The Participation Deposit is required.
The Chippewa lake Water Ski Show Team requires each participant to be a member of the USA Water Ski Association and a current member of the Chippewa lake Water Ski Show Team. The USA Water Ski Association is a non-profit, nationwide association, which supports and promotes safe water skiing on a professional organized basis.
In addition to many benefits all active USA Water Ski association members are protected by a liability insurance policy (health insurance coverage for skiing accidents are not covered, each member is responsible for their individual health coverage and cost). For this reason all members who participate in club events (even if you are not skiing) must be an active member of the USA Water Ski Association.
To become a USA member fill out and submit the USA Water Ski Membership Application or go online at www.usawaterski.org/join. Once your membership has been completed provide proof of USA membership (copy membership card and/or membership receipt) with your Chippewa Lake Water Ski Show Team membership application..
