THE 2018 WORLD WATER SKI SHOW TOURNAMENT STARTS THIS SATURDAY!

The 4th World Water Ski Show Tournament is set to kick off a new era of water sports in Canada!

From September 7-9, 2018, top athletes from Canada, USA, Australia, Belgium, China and Germany are set to hit the water at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario for a weekend of action packed entertainment for all ages.

Show skiing involves a group of water skiers performing a variety of acts with the primary objective of providing entertainment. Show skiing is a full production featuring music, a story, costumes, and a whole theme that is incorporated into an hour-long show with multiple acts. There’s something happening on stage, on the docks and on the water with the sole purpose of offering incredible entertainment to the crowd. Routines typically include multiple costume changes, massive moving human pyramids, music jumps and a story line that ties the whole thing together.

Each team will perform one show each day, with the highest-scoring performance determining the champion. Saturday’s running order, which was determined by blind draw, will be: Germany, Belgium, United States, Canada, Australia and China. Sunday’s running order will be determined by Saturday’s placement, with the highest-scoring team from Saturday performing last on Sunday.

The team rosters are limited to 35 total members, including skiers, boat drivers, announcers and show directors.

Opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 p.m. (EDT) on Friday. The team competition begins at 7:30 a.m. (EDT) on both Saturday and Sunday. A live webcast of the opening ceremonies and action on Saturday and Sunday can be viewed at https://worldwaterskishowtournament.com/webcast.
