Water Ski Canada’s UPDATED Ranking Lists are now available.

2020 has been an exceptional season. Some provinces have held events, some have not. In addition some athletes have chosen not to participate to stay safe and healthy. As a result, the WSC Technical Committee has decided to compile this year's ranking to include 2019 events in an effort to provide some consistency, year over year.

Head over to our website to view

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.

Avis d’éclaircissement

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.

THE 2020 CANADIAN #VIRTUAL SLALOM CHAMPIONSHIPS

Are you water skiing this weekend at your home site or Club? If so, we have the event for you!

Water Ski Canada and World Water Skiers are proud to bring you the first-ever Virtual Slalom Championships, a Class F Recreational free event. Due to COVID-19, Water Ski Canada has had to significantly alter our summer tournament schedule. Water Ski Canada’s foremost concern is to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants at our tournaments. We have all missed competing together in one location; we know you do, too. To celebrate the end of the summer, we have teamed with World Water Skiers to help launch their new virtual platform, Water Ski Games.

The 2020 Canadian Virtual Slalom Championships is an opportunity for you to compete from your home training grounds, with the Canadian water ski community – for fun! An incredible opportunity to virtually bring together our athletes.

Water Ski Games is a revolutionary approach to water ski tournaments! With the pressure to find a way to keep people competing through COVID-19 times, World Water Skiers has pulled out all the stops to come up with a great way to do this. No judges and no official drivers are required. Skiers can simply record a video of their performance and upload it on the new Water Ski Games platform to participate in a Nation-wide event.

Kreg Llewellyn

Kreg Llewellyn got an early start to his water ski career when he frequented Sylvan Lake with his family. At age 6 he entered a tournament and the rest is history. Kreg is one of Canada’s most successful skier’s of all time. Known for his Overall strength and individual performances Jump, his innovative mastery in Tricks, and strong performances in slalom.  He was a dominant force on the water ski circuit for over 20 years. Kreg’s first year on the National Team was 1984 and his brilliant skiing played an important role in the team’s World Championship titles in 1991, 1993 and 1999. 


Kreg is known as an innovator that pushed the sport of waterskiing and wakeboarding to new levels.  Kreg was the first to perform SL5B, SL5F, Sl7bb,    RSLo, Double Mobius FF.  Other innovations were the first to use a speed suit in jumping (Borrowed from Steve Bush) and the first to do a back flip on a wakeboard (Skuffer) in early 1988. Subsequently, Kreg Llewelyn was hired by Tony Finn (inventor of Skuffer / wakeboard), makes Kreg the first professional wakeboarder in history. 

Despite being plagued with several injuries over the years, Kreg still managed to win three medals at the
1991 World Championships in Austria, equaling the best-ever performance of 3 medals at the World Championships for any Canadian. He is a 2 Time World Overall Silver Medalist, a World Slalom Medalist, U.S. Masters Trick Champion, 2 Time U.S. Open Overall and Trick Champion, and a Moomba Masters Overall and Trick Champion. Kreg currently holds 24 Canadian National Records in all three water ski events.


Inducted into the Hall of Fame 2006

“It’s something you don’t think about in your competitive years but it is sure nice to get that recognition,” said Llewellyn,  “It’s a great opportunity to thank everyone that helped you along the way. Water skiing can be an individualistic sport so for me my fondest memories are winning the world team titles for Canada and all the friendship over the years”
