Carolina Show Ski Team Invite Teens, Tweens, and Adults to Join

Tega Cay, S.C.May 14, 2015 – Parents, if you are looking for an activity for your teen or tween or if you’re looking for an activity you can do together, look no further. The Carolina Show Ski Team (CSST) is already welcoming several new members in the 2015 season, and there’s room for more.

Anyone who wants to water ski or even just participate in a fun team environment can join. You don’t have to be a great water skier, but skiing members must have a few core competencies – for safety’s sake – and be willing to try new things while putting on an entertaining water ski show. Some of these basics include the ability to perform a two-ski seated dock start and the ability to participate in a basic skiing act as designated by CSST’s Show Director. Not quite there yet? Joining early in the season will enable you to learn these basic skills from CSST veterans so that you can quickly be incorporated into a show.

CSST is more than just waterskiing; although, the water is pretty fun, too. Members learn teambuilding skills while also growing as community-conscious individuals. Water skiers will be involved in a healthy outdoor watersport where the boats, gasoline, ropes, and basic ski show equipment are provided by the team. Those not ready to get their feet wet can still participate by riding in boats, deejaying, choreographing, sewing, acting in land skits, and more. Show skiing can be a lifelong activity.

You’ll find current CSST members practicing Monday, Thursday, and Friday evenings at Windjammer Beach Park in Tega Cay, S.C. The community is also invited to see the completely new production starting in June at the same location on Fridays at 7 p.m.
