NOTE FROM WATER SKI CANADA ON 2021 EVENTS AND SELECTION CRITERIA/ AVIS DE SKI NAUTIQUE CANADA SUR LES COMPETITIONS 2021 ET LES CRITERES DE SELECTION

IWWF Competitions for 2021 have been posted and until notified otherwise, the events are proceeding; as such selection criteria posted by Water Ski Canada are based on the following understanding.

We appreciate that there is a tremendous amount of concern with respect to the selection of athletes to Event Teams for 2021 events. 

WSWC and the High-Performance Committee want to assure all skiers that we will make every effort to ensure that Event Team selection criteria is as fair and transparent as possible to all athletes vying for spots on those Teams. 

We are aware of the unique situations of each of our Athletes and The National Team Head Coach and Coaching Group will continue to communicate directly with all athletes to make sure we understand those specific situations.  We stress the importance of athletes to remain in contact with the National Team Head Coach and Coaching Group, especially where individual athlete circumstances may have changed.

We would like to encourage all skiers to train and participate in events where possible while respecting local, Provincial and Federal guidelines. 

The High-Performance Committee continues to meet and monitor the situation on an ongoing basis and will provide updates to the community as needed.

Les compétitions de la FISNP pour 2021 ont été affichées et, jusqu’à avis contraire, les compétitions auront lieu; donc les critères de sélection affichés par Ski nautique Canada sont fondés sur la compréhension suivante.

Nous reconnaissons qu’il y a beaucoup d’inquiétude concernant la sélection des athlètes dans les équipes pour les compétitions 2021. 

SNPC et le comité de haute performance veulent rassurer tous les skieurs que nous ferons tous les efforts pour assurer que les critères de sélection pour les équipes sont aussi justes et transparents que possibles pour tous les athlètes qui visent des places dans ces équipes. 

Nous sommes conscients des situations uniques de chacun de nos athlètes et l‘entraîneur-chef de l’équipe nationale et le groupe d’entraîneurs continueront de communiquer directement avec tous les athlètes pour s’assurer que nous comprenons ces situations spécifiques. Nous insistons sur l’importance que les athlètes demeurent en contact avec l‘entraîneur-chef de l’équipe nationale et le groupe d’entraîneurs, spécialement quand les circonstances des athlètes individuels peuvent avoir changé.

Nous voulons encourager tous les skieurs à s’entraîner et à participer aux compétitions quand c’est possible tout en respectant les directives locales, provinciales et fédérales. 

Le comité de haute performance continue de se réunir et de superviser la situation de manière permanente et fournira des mises à jour à la collectivité au besoin.

NEW – IWWF COMPETITIVE LICENCE

ATTENTION ALL ATHLETES

NEW – IWWF COMPETITIVE LICENCE

Based on a decision made at the 2019 IWWF Congress in Malaysia, all athletes wishing to compete in IWWF Sanctioned Ranking List (RL) / Record Capability (RC) competitions both nationally and internationally in 2021, must hold an active IWWF Competitive Licence (does not include Adaptive water ski).

*Please note this does not replace the requirement that you must also be an active member of WSWC if you are participating in RL/RC event in Canada.

WHY AN IWWF LICENCE?
-During the 2019 IWWF Congress held in Malaysia, it was decided to launch an IWWF Licence to help finance/reduce costs for organizers to host future IWWF World Titled events in particular the IWWF World Open Waterski Championships which includes the hosting of the IWWF Congress. The International Hall of Fame ceremonies, held at the respective IWWF World Championships of each sport discipline, also needs to be financed.
-This would result in there being more interested parties wishing to bid and host for this event so the IWWF can select event venues with the best conditions so athletes can perform to the best of their abilities.
– The IWWF Licence, for a modest fee, will help improve the quality of their services to Athletes and National Federations
– The IWWF Executive Board is counting on the support of all National Federations and Sports Division Councils to achieve this goal because it is in the best interest of our Athletes and Sport.

WILL THE IWWF LICENCE BE MANDATORY FOR ALL ATHLETES PARTICIPATING IN RL/RC COMPETITION?
-YES, it will concern ALL Athletes participating in a RL/RC competition (and not only the Athletes who want to have their names listed on the Ranking List). This is not a Licence for those who want to be on the Ranking List but a Licence for those who want to PARTICIPATE in a RL/RC competition from 2021 onwards.

PRICE
1. $25.00 USD for a Yearly Unlimited Licence
2. $7.00 USD for a Single Competition Licence
*Please note that you can also buy in bulk for your family and/or club/school
