Introducing Water Ski Ambassador Program

The American Water Ski Association and BallofSpray are proud to announce The Water Ski Ambassador Program. The purpose is to connect people who are curious about skiing (but not currently involved) with skiers who are currently involved and passionate about the sport. Anyone with passion for water skiing and access to a ski site and boat can be an Ambassador. Ambassadors are asked to simply introduce new skiers to the sport. When possible, Ambassadors will take new skiers out to a ski site and show them what opportunities are available. Most Ambassadors' commitment will be minimal, and depending on the Ambassador and their location, the job will be conducted a little differently for each person.
