Changes To Safety Rating Renewals

Due to COVID-19 and the challenges it presents in working events in 2020, the USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Risk Management Committee and board of directors have voted to make changes to the safety rating renewal requirements for the renewal periods outlined below. These temporary changes will not be reflected in safety program documents.

How to Check Your Current Official Rating Status, Expiration, Certifications and Events Worked:

Log into your Members-Only section of the USA-WSWS website using your membership number and password

Choose Official Ratings/Certifications from the left-hand navigational menu

Ratings - displays your current official ratings, expiration date and current status toward the next renewal period

Certifications - displays all certifications (i.e., SafeSport, Background Screening, First Aid/CPR, MVR Reviews) on file and their expiration date

Events - displays ALL events for which you have received officials' credit. Event credits are manually imported upon receipt so allow a few extra days after the event for credit to be awarded.

NOTE: It is imperative that you check your event credits often to ensure that you've received proper credit for events worked rather than waiting until the next renewal period to find that you did not receive credit and are short for renewal. Please contact me regarding any discrepancies and I will advise you on how best to resolve them.

If you have any questions regarding these changes or your safety rating, please email officials@usawaterski.org.
