UC Waterski & Wakeboard Club
The team practices weekly at Skier's Runway in Hamilton-Cleves, OH from April until Mid-October. It is a private lake site and one of our coaches is a MasterCraft promo boat driver. This means that we practice behind a brand new, tournament-grade boat. The lake has a full slalom and jump course.
Our competition season is September through October. We go to 2 open tournaments every year, the Southern Ohio Challenge in Harrison, OH and the Great Lakes Fling in Van Wert, OH. Then we go to our first qualifying tournament, the Great Lakes Conference Championships in Van Wert, OH. Upon qualifying, we travel to Decatur, IL for Midwest Collegiate Regionals. If we qualify there, which we have in the past, we travel to an awesome warm location for Collegiate Nationals! Our tournaments are a ton of fun and give opportunities for both A Team and B Team skiers!
Our team also does a lot of social events throughout the year. We travel to Dale Hollow Lake for our annual Houseboat trip, to a school in the Midwest for Winter Conference, as well as to Lucky Lowe's Ski School for spring break. Additionally, we participate in campus events like Club Sports on the Green and Relay for Life, and fun events like Ski Freeze or Die and attending the Cincinnati Boat Show.
