Clarification Regarding AWSA Rule 10.06C

With the changes that occurred in changing the ZBS rule, the Rules Committee discovered that when the rule was amended the following portion of rule 10.06C should have been kept in place. There may still be skiers who want to ski above their age division maximum speed and accept the lower speed as their score. It will not put them on the IWWF ranking list this way nor use the new ZBS matrix, but it will allow some skiers maybe for health reasons to use this option.

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.
