ABOUT OUR CLINICS

RMS+W is excited to announce a series of clinics for the 2019 season. These clinics will focus on key fundamentals of waterskiing at any level. Each clinic is skill level-specific, allowing you to not only advance while being coached on water but continue to learn as you ride in the boat with coaches delivering instruction to fellow skiers. This gives you the opportunity to see things first hand, hear explanations and instruction that will make sense at your skiing level. Some clinics will have video taken for you to take home at the end of the clinic.

These clinics will be exciting events that will allow skiers of all levels to gain improved techniques, advance ski abilities and become more comfortable and consistent on their ski. Not to mention how fun it will be to hang out with RMS+W coaches, and pro and semi-pro skiers for an afternoon!

Please plan on a park entry fee of $10/vehicle. Season passes available at gate and online. http://www.lakewood.org/bclp/
