Changes To Trained Driver 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 the following changes to the Trained Driver rating renewal requirements for 2021 renewals only. These temporary changes will not be reflected in Trained Driver program documents.

Temporary Adjustments to 2021 Trained Driver Rating Renewal Requirements Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Requirement to participate as a driver in at least one sanctioned event or perform ten hours of practical driving experience in 2020 is waived

Current MVR (Motor Vehicle Record) Review required

Completion of one clinic credit option over the four-year period of 1/1/2017 through 12/31/2020 (online alternatives available)

Current Active USA-WSWS membership

USA-WSWS will continue to send email reminders to drivers whose MVR Reviews are due for renewal or who need to complete a clinic credit before 12/31/2020.

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 dates 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/hours worked rather than waiting until the next renewal period to find that you did not receive credit and are short for renewal.

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