How to grow the sport

In the video, my 6 year old daugher is learning how to do a side slide.

The Chilean waterski federation established a "Formative School", for kids under 10. If they can get up in a single slalom, single trick or can jump, they get a subsidy for 20 sets each month for each discipline, so they ski with a coach for US$ 12 per set.

In the video, my daughter's coach happens to be the current overall world champion, Felipe Miranda.

What can be better and motivating for kids than skiing and having fun with other kids the same age, and being coached by a world champion? I think the Chilean Federation here is doing a fantastic initiative that will result in growth.
