USA Water Ski & Wake Sports GrassRoots Series

The GrassRoots Series is one of USA Water Ski & Wake Sports' most exciting nationwide programs. It’s a great place for you to experience what skiing or riding against others feels like. Forget the pressure of serious competition; make it an opportunity to have fun and learn!

The GrassRoots Series is designed to be a fun, family-oriented experience for all water sports enthusiasts. Whether you are learning how to ski the slalom course, barefooting in circles or swivel skiing with your best friends, USA Water Ski & Wake Sports has an opportunity for you.

Participating in either a GrassRoots Fun Day or Tournament is easy, fun and rewarding. Just join USA Water Ski & Wake Sports as a GrassRoots Member and click here to find an event near you. If the local organizing club (LOC) is using Online Registration, participants may sign up directly online! This will save time and ensure that all registration forms are complete. Participants may also register and sign up for a membership on site. Once you have a membership, and you have registered for the event, you are ready to ski or ride! Just show up with your equipment (ski, wakeboard, kneeboard etc., life jacket, gloves and rope) and you are ready to go.
