WHAT IS THE WATER SKI GAMES ?

WorldWaterSkiers has launched the Water Ski Games. A revolutionary approach to water ski tournaments!

With inspiration from other successful sports such as Crossfit and the pressure to find a way to keep people competing through COVID-19 times, the team has pulled out all the stops to come up with a great way to do this. No judges, no official drivers required. Skiers can simply record a video of their performance and upload it on the new Water Ski Games platform to participate in a great world-wide leaderboard. Single skiers, ski schools and ski clubs can now organize their own record tournaments with zero bureaucracy.

Later this summer, once people and ski-clubs/ski-schools will be familiar with the platform we will launch our Record Tournaments.

For 2021, The Water Ski Games League will lead into a Finale event “The Water Ski Games” at the end of each year where the top skiers from the year will get to compete against each other at a location somewhere in the world.

CLASS-C   INSTRUCTIONS

 

  1. TOURNAMENT ENTRY
    Tournament Entry and Code generation –
  • Login on worldwaterskiers.com
  • Make sure all your profile information is correct. Your profile picture must show your face clearly.
  • Enter by selecting the active tournament in which you would like to participate. Once entered, you will be emailed a numeric code.
  • You now have 72 hours to upload the video in the dedicated “submit” section

 

  • VIDEO RECORDING
    How to take the video –

  • Although not mandatory we advise skiers to record the video in 1080p 30 fps.
  • The video must be one continuous take (with no edits) of only the last three passes. You can record the whole set and then trim the start and end. Make sure not to leave the smartphone face down between one pass and the next. A black screen might be interpreted as a video cut.
  •  STEPS –
    1. Before skiing, write down on a piece of paper the previously generated numeric code.
    2. Before each pass, you have to show the piece of paper with the code on camera.
    3. The camera should show the rope on the pylon after every deep water start and before entering the slalom course.
    4. At the end of every pass, right after the exit gates (or one full buoy after the fall of the skier), the camera should show the times on the Zero Off screen.
    5. At least once during the course of the submitted video, zoom in the face of the skier. Make sure you do it during the last 3 passes (which are the only ones you will upload).

     

  • VIDEO UPLOAD
    How to upload the video –

    • Upload the video on your favorite video platform: Youtube, Facebook or Instagram.
    • Go back to worldwaterskiers.com  in the “Water Ski Games” section. Click on “submit” and input your provisional score and the URL to your video.

     

  • That’s it! Your score will immediately appear on the world wide Water Ski Games Leaderboard.
