Set in beautiful countryside around Whitworth, The Water Ski Academy boasts some of the best facilities for water skiing and boarding. We can arrange bespoke coaching courses and offer residential accommodation.
We don’t only offer training in all aspects of skiing and boarding, we also train the trainers. We offer courses to “wannabe” Coaches and Drivers. Also offering Sport Specific First Aid Training and Child Protection Courses we are a learning resource for Coaches and Officials.
Over the winter months we will be running training seminars for Judges and Officials in all divisions of the sport so that we can have more inter-club competitions across the Northern Regions in the future.
