The Carolina Show Ski Team is a competitive, entertaining, family-oriented team that performs water ski shows throughout the summer at Windjammer Beach Park in Tega Cay, SC and other events around the Carolinas. We practice, perform weekly ski shows, compete in Regional and National Tournaments, and give back to our community.
The Carolina Show Ski Team’s right history began as the Heritage Lake Ski Club. In October 1992, the Heritage Lake Ski Club voted to become an active member with AWSA (American Water Ski Association), which is now USA Water Ski. This was the same year we made the pitch to perform ski shows at Heritage Lake. Our team had nothing: no skis, no ropes, no sound, no boat, and no one with any show skiing experience. We were just a bunch of river skiers who wanted to perform.
As more and more new members and former professional show skiers found our team, we were able to perform more interesting acts and a more frequent ski shows. We were briefly the Lake Wylie Ski Club before rebranding ourselves as the Carolina Show Ski Team. In rebranding, there was much discussion about being a “Club” vs a “Team.” We felt that the term Team was a better indicator of our vision for our organization.
In 1997 we competed in our first water ski show tournament in Tampa, FL. After that competition, we never looked back: we knew we were meant to be a competition water ski show team.
Today, every practice and every show writes a page in the Carolina Show Ski Team’s history book. We’re excited to have you along for our journey. We’d be honored for you to come watch one of our free water ski shows in Windjammer Beach Park on Lake Wylie in Tega Cay, SC.
