Due to the growing concerns related to the pandemic, the size of the tournament, as well as the availability of teams due to university restrictions on competition and travel, the National Collegiate Water Ski Association has announced the Syndicate Waterskis 2020 Collegiate Water Ski National Championships has been officially canceled. The 2020 Nationals had previously been postponed from October 2020 to May 2021 due to the current pandemic and various related travel and competition restrictions with affiliated NCWSA teams.
The Syndicate Waterskis 2021 Collegiate Nationals will be held Oct. 21-23 at Tri-Lakes in Zachary, La.
2021 NCWSA All-Stars Is Still On
Despite the cancelation of the Nationals, the 40th Collegiate All-Stars Water Ski Championships will proceed as planned. The event is scheduled for its normal format from May 15-16, 2021 at Laku Landing in Windsor, Colo.
Skiers who participate in the 2021 NCWSA All-Stars will consume All-Stars eligibility and will start their six-year window to consume four falls, four springs and four All-Stars tournaments worth of eligibility.
As with all other All-Stars tournaments, each region selects a team of individuals to compete for a regional title as the four regions compete in a region versus region competition. Regional leadership will be in touch with their respective teams about the All-Stars tournament and the cancelation of Nationals at their respective upcoming meetings.
