USA Water Ski Trained Drivers Program
This Drivers Program is designed to teach boat drivers, beginner through advanced, to safely operate a towboat while towing a skier / rider. The major emphasis of this program is safety consciousness at all times, and upon completion of the program, the Driver will have the knowledge and skills to implement all necessary precautions to safely tow a skier / rider.
To maintain a Trained Driver's rating the individual must participate as a driver in at least one USA Water Ski - sanctioned GrassRoots tournament per calendar year and pass the iDrive Boats / USA Water Ski course every four years. To ensure that your tournament work is recorded accurately at USA Water Ski Headquarters, please make sure that both the Tournament Officials' Record and the top half of the Trained Driver Practical Experience Records are completed correctly and signed off. This record will serve as an important backup to USA Water Ski's data on your work in case of discrepancy.
A Trained Driver may also maintain his/her rating by performing ten (10) hours of practical experience as a camp, ski school, or USA Water Ski - sanctioned exhibition / practice per calendar year and passing the iDrive Boats USA-WS course every four years. This experience must be verified by: a Camp Recreation Director, Ski School Manager or another USA Water SKi - rated Senior Official. This Experience must be documented on a Trained Driver Practical Experience Record and forwarded to USA Water Ski Headquarters' Officials Programs Specialist with you USA Water Ski "Active" Membership number.
