New AWSA Level 10 and Rule 3.03 FAQ

In January 2017, the American Water Ski Association made modifications to rule 3.03. The modification creates a new Level 10 rating. The Skiers Qualification Committee (SQC) determines the ratings cutoffs for L10. Previously, 3.03 governed Level 9, which was a level where a skier could optionally enter Elite division competition (Open or Masters). Level 10 creates a level of performance, that when achieved, mandates that a skier compete in their Elite division. There are also some changes to Level 9 and being able to compete for age division overall while still competing in Open or Masters in your Level 9 event.
