COVID-19 Announcements From NCWSA

The National Collegiate Water Ski Association has announced the postponement of the 2020 Collegiate Water Ski All-Stars Championships and the cancellation of the 2020 Team Trials for selection to the 2020 U.S. World University Water Ski Team. The 39th annual All-Stars tournament, originally scheduled for May 30-31 in Jacksonville, Ill., has been postponed until a date to be determined after June 30, 2020. The U.S. World University Water Ski Team was to be selected following Team Trials, but Team Trials was coupled with All-Stars and is now canceled due to team selection needing to occur prior to potential future 2020 NCWSA All-Stars dates. The NCWSA board of directors has opted to switch from Team Trials to using rankings for selection.

Skiers may read the updated eligibility and deadlines in the Team USA Selection Procedures document. Tournament scores between Jan. 1, 2019 and June 15, 2020 will be used in the selection process. Skiers must submit an intent to participate to the NCWSA Chair, Jeff Surdej (j_surdej@yahoo.com), by May 30, 2020. No minimum scores are required to submit an intent to participate. An intent submission will place you on the list of potential skiers for University Team USA selection based on rankings.

2020 Spring Season

USA Water Ski & Wake Sports pulled all event sanctions up to May 17, 2020. This effectively canceled all spring NCWSA tournaments. The FSC Collegiate Spring tournament was the only NCWSA spring tournament to occur prior to the USA-WSWS sanction pull.

Additional Spring Eligibility

NCWSA skiers do not use a season of eligibility if they do not ski A-Team. This means the vast majority of skiers retain the spring season of eligibility that would have been consumed by spring 2020 skiing.However, the NCWSA Board of Directors has voted to grant an additional season of spring eligibility to all skiers that participated in the tournament that featured Florida Southern College and Rollins College skiers in February 2020. The six-year eligibility clock still applies to the consumption of eligibility.

The Rest of 2020

At this time, we cannot make any decisions about future NCWSA tournaments from All-Stars' new date through the entire 2020 fall season. Universities potentially staying online for the fall term and statewide gathering restrictions are two of the many unknowns in our future. As the season approaches, we will openly communicate any cancellations or alterations as soon as we can.
