IWWF Delays License Implementation

The International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation had originally announced following its 2019 Congress that all athletes would need to hold an IWWF license for Ranking List competitions starting April 1, 2020. However, the IWWF reports that implementation has been time consuming and not all National Federations will be ready to implement it by April 1. To treat all the athletes fairly, the IWWF has therefore decided to re-schedule the IWWF license implementation to September 2020 for all Ranking List competitions taking place after Jan. 1, 2021.
