Officials

The WSWBC Officials Program provides resources, training and certification for officials at all levels from club tournaments to National competition. Participation as an official ensures our athletes have an opportunity to compete fairly and equitably with other athletes at towed water sports tournaments.

Water Ski & Wakeboard BC has the responsibility to recruit and train officials at the entry level, and will hold, from time to time, as demand warrants, training clinics for new and developing officials. These clinics will provide opportunities for Judges, Boat Drivers, Calculators, and Technical Controllers.
