I'm interested in becoming a certified driver for AWSA...anyone here already certified?
</p>
<p>
I've checked the USAWS website and it seems the clinics are real sporadic and thin.

I've got a call into them, but I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has already travelled down the road.

    You do not need a clinic to begin the process.  As I recall, you only need to complete an application process and some supervised training to become an assistant driver.   Talk to a rated driver in your area who can get you started.  They are listed by state in the usa waterski website.

     There is an application form on the USAWS website.  You have to perform some functions at tournaments as well as pull some skiers and have a Regular or Senior judge sign off on those pulls.  After completing the application, you must attend a driver's clinic.  There is a class room portion of the clinic and a practical portion (pulling skiers).  During the practical portion, you will be judged on your use of PP, boat path, times and general handling of the boat in a tournament setting.  I'm having a clinic at my site on September 22nd.  Don't know where you're located, but it may be one of the few opportunities this fall.

    The clinic is for aspiring Assistant Drivers.  Those that have completed the pre-work and are ready to be tested.  I'm located in NW Louisiana - Shreveport area.
