New Member Information
The Sarasota Ski-A-Rees are always in search of new members who have the desire to join an organization that enjoys a long and rich history such as the Ski-A-Rees.
Membership in the organization is open to young and old alike who are interested in learning about and developing skills related to water skiing and water safety, and to adults who desire to educate, coach and supervise. Said membership is conditional upon the approval of the organization's Board of Directors. The Ski-A-Rees have much to offer to both the single person as well as the entire family. There are currently approximately 80 active members ranging in age from 3 years old to over 70. In addition, there are members from as far south as Naples, east to Boca Raton and North to Port Richey.
Memberships available include: Family (Individuals or couples and their dependents) , Individual, Collegiate (Full time, unmarried students under the age of 25) and Supporting.
The Ski-A-Rees perform water ski shows during the fall and winter months for the public at our site on Ken Thompson Park. We also participate in several traveling shows as well as 1 to 3 tournaments per year. Check our schedule for upcoming events.
There are many activities that are needed to run a organization like the Ski-A-Rees other than water skiing. Such as: announcers, sound technicians, costume designers & seamstress, dock & equipment maintenance, stage hands, tow boat & safety boat driving, boat observers, set designers & builders, script writers, fund raising, publicity, sponsorship, concessions, club officers & directors, etc...
The Ski-A-Rees are an amateur water ski team. We are not necessarily looking for the ultimate water skier. If you have some ability and the desire to work, learn and be part of a team, then we have a place for you.
