An important message to all collegiate water skiers and their parents: the March 15th deadline for the 2019 USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation scholarships is quickly approaching. USA-WWF is offering seven scholarships this year ranging from $1,500 to $5,000 to help collegiate water skiers pay for their education while they are going to school and competing on their respective water ski teams.
Scholarships are awarded each year to water skiers who best represent through achievements in academics and sports- representing what it means to be an ambassador and an athlete; and whose contributions to school and community set them apart in a special way.
You are now able to register with the MWSA and pay your dues via our secure website. Your dues will be valid for the entire 2019 Water Ski season, and you can choose between an individual membership and a family membership.
Congratulations to our officials that will represent MN at Regionals and Nationals!

As part of the 2017 Membership Campaign, your MN Waterski Board asked who would be interested in skiing with others. If you are looking to get out on the lake, or to check out a new lake, this list is a great place to start...
Evelyn Chapin Duvall
The Minnesota Water Ski Association is pleased to introduce Evelyn Chapin Duvall as the 2018 Hall of Fame Inductee.
Evelyn learned to ski at the age of 7 and started competing at age 11. Evelyn was a three event skier for many years, before retiring from jump in the 1980s. She continues to slalom and trick in tournaments today. Since age 11, Evelyn has skied in 25 different national competitions, placing in the top ten 12 different times, the top five 6 times, and in 2012 she placed 2nd in slalom with a score of 1.5 at 35off, 32mph! Evelyn served as the MWSA as secretary for a number of years, designed and engraved trophies, designed MWSA logos, and helped judge many different events. In 2005, Evelyn also earned the Toby Shotwell award for the highest NOPS points earned in a tournament.
MWSA recognizes sponsors who have helped MWSA support the growth and development of water skiing in Minnesota. Please be sure to visit and patronize these businesses!
