I know I am probably treading on very thin ice. My question is not politically charged. I am obviously late to the table. When I got my renewal email from USA Waterski I considered renewing immediately. (Early Spring). I didn’t. About a month ago I learned that doing SafeSport training was required to renew with USA waterski. My question is why?
I cannot think of one legitimate reason as to why this is part of my USA waterski sign up.
I am not coaching young people at a tournament
I am not coaching young people at my ski lake
No, I am not renewing.
My ski partner skied states this week and I believe they had 4 participants in M5. 4!! 66 total skiers at a state tourney.
A friend texted me and said he was one of three skiers in M3 for his state tournament. 3!
There are several discussions on here regarding what’s killing the slalom skiing sport, etc.
My opinion is this certainly didn’t help.
I seriously would love to know the relationship b/w the two.
