We perform twice-weekly water ski shows on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. We are the most successful water ski show team in the world with 62 total tournament victories, including 19 U.S. national championships, since 1975. Our shows provide a platform for teaching our members and the general public about safe boating and water-skiing techniques.
This year we will host the Division I U.S. National Water Ski Show Tournament for the 25th time and the World Water Ski Show Tournament for the second time. Over 100,000 people attend our shows and special events each year, resulting in an estimated biennial economic impact of more than $5 million, which also makes us a leading tourist and entertainment attraction in south-central Wisconsin.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization funded solely through donations, traditional fundraising, special events, sponsorships, advertising, food/beverage sales, logo merchandise sales, and membership dues. None of our members are paid, and we receive no public funding. In fact, our members pay annual dues to belong.
