SPORT COUNCIL NOMINATIONS NOW OPEN

Nominations are now open for any interested person to apply for the Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada (WSWC) Sport Councils. WSWC recognizes the following five Sport Councils:

  • Adaptive
  • Barefoot
  • Show Ski
  • Wake Sports (Wakeboard, Wake Park, Wakesurf, Wakeskate)
  • Water Ski

The Sport Councils of WSWC represent the stakeholders of each of the five identified sports. The role of the Sport Councils is to support and advance the growth and progression of their sports while staying true to their sport culture.

Developed in consultation with the Sport Councils, the Sport Council Terms of Reference, outlines the roles and responsibilities of the Sport Councils and provides an overarching framework for how the Sport Councils operate within WSWC, in an effort to increase transparency, accountability and engagement. A key component of implementation of the Sport Council Terms of Reference was the restructuring of the Sport Councils to include appointed and elected positions.

Based on this restructuring, the Sport Councils composition is as follows.

As per the Sport Council Terms of Reference, those eligible to vote for the Council elections will be those individuals (18 years of age and older) with a full individual or family membership type with their Provincial Sport Organization, who have identified the sport as their primary discipline.

Nominations are now open for any interested person to apply for the WSWC Sport Councils.  Nominations will be accepted thru to October 18, 2020.

Note of Clarification
 
It has come to Water Ski Canada’s attention that the C1 tournament that took place this past weekend, sanctioned “World Water Ski League Open Slalom Championships” has created confusion for some due to event social media posts congratulating “Canadian Champions”.
 
Please note that this was not a Water Ski Canada National Championships. The 2020 Canadian Water Ski National Championships originally scheduled for Shalom Park in August were cancelled in April due to the pandemic. With the hope that competition will return to normal in 2021, we will resume the National Championships then. Stay tuned for more information to come.
 
Il a été porté à l’attention de Ski nautique Canada que la compétition C1 qui a eu lieu la fin de semaine dernière, sanctionnée “Championnats ouverts de slalom de la Ligue mondiale de Ski nautique” a créé de
la confusion pour certains à cause d’affichages de félicitations dans les médias sociaux “Champions canadiens”.  

Veuillez prendre note qu’il ne s’agissait pas des championnats nationaux de Ski nautique Canada. Les championnats nationaux de Ski nautique Canada 2020, originalement prévus à Shalom Park en août, ont été annulés en avril à cause de la pandémie. En espérant que la compétition reviendra à la normale en 2021, nous reprendrons les championnats nationaux alors. Demeurez à l’écoute pour plus de
renseignements à venir.
