The 39th Division 1 Show Ski National Championships will be held Aug. 9-11 on the Rock River at Shorewood Park in Loves Park, Ill. Hosted by the Ski Broncs, the tournament will feature more than 1,500 athletes competing for the coveted show ski national title. Fourteen show ski clubs will be competing in this year's tournament.
In competitive show skiing, each club has one hour to present a theatrical performance on water skis. Judges score the acts by awarding points based on execution, difficulty, spectator appeal and flow. Elaborate costumes and staging intermix with music and fast action on the water as an announcer leads the audience through the show. The Show Ski National Championships also features athletes competing individually in adagio doubles, swivel, freestyle jumping and multi-jumping acts.
