AWSA's team skiing format is back for a second consecutive year. 2016 marked the inaugural year of the exciting format in which states and areas formed three-event teams of five men, five women and five junior skiers competing in a placement-based NOPS format similar to collegiate water skiing. Last year, teams lined the shorelines sporting bibs and other spirit-award worthy gear cheering each other on. The top-two teams from each region will qualify for Nationals and all skiers of a team, regardless of ranking, can compete on their team. Last year’s regional champions were Virginia (Eastern), Florida (Southern), Central Texas (South Central), Illinois (Midwest) and Area 3/Northern California (Western Region). Florida went on to win the national title. Interested in skiing on a team? Click on the "3-event Water Skiing" link at the top of the page and find the "Team Skiing" section on the left side menu.
