Ohio Junior Development Program
Purpose: To promote the sport of waterskiing to Boys/Girls age 17 and under and to provide resources to improve their skills.
Ohio has a very strong waterskiing history. In 2009 alone, Ohio boasts:
As a good portion of competitive waterskiers no longer ski on public waterways, the majority of the youth in Ohio have had very little exposure to the enjoyment and possibilities that exist in the sport of waterskiing. Additionally, even those that have been exposed to the sport have limited tournament knowledge and limited knowledge as to the possibilities that exist in the sport including local, regional, national, collegiate, and world events. The Ohio Junior Development program hopes to bridge this gap by providing information to our young waterskiers and provide clinics to improve their skills.
The OWSA Junior Development is in desperate need of sponsorship and donations for our 2010 Junior Development Clinic.

All sponsors will be recognized on all Junior Development advertising including flyers, the webpage, and the t-shirts.
