Sports have historically played an important role in all societies, be it in the form of competitive sport, physical activity or play.  Through a series of innovative educational and outreach programs, the Foundation seeks to enhance lives and communities in the United States through the values of the sport of water skiing and all towed water sports. These sports have a unique power to attract, mobilize and inspire.


By their very nature, they are about participation, inclusion, social integration and family. The Foundation will assist people of all ages, walks of life and ability levels in finding fitness, enjoyment and accomplishment through waterskiing and all towed water sports.
