Think TankAttend to learn. Attend to give back. Attend to catch up with old friends. Attend because it's in a great location with more hotel room options and a waterpark. Chula Vista is ideally suited for hosting our event, offering sufficient meeting and expo space along with great restaurants and an atmosphere that allows for fostering camaraderie.

Attending Think Tank is a show of support for water skiing in general and, specifically, water skiing in Wisconsin.

We developed a comprehensive plan that defines the hybrid event and outlines safety measures, refund policies, and conditions for pivoting to all-virtual.

All attendees and instructors are required to sign the USA Water Ski & Wake Sports COVID-19 waiver and provide the WWSF with the original signed copy at the time of event registration check-in. No person will be allowed to participate without providing the signed waiver.

If you are sick, stay home. All attendees, instructors, expo vendors, and others associated with ThinK Tank will be required to wear a face covering (over the mouth and nose) at all times during all scheduled events.

Yes, you sure can! If you're not comfortable attending in person, you have the option to participate via videoconference. Beginning in 2021, and as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the WWSF will offer nearly half of all clinics and seminars both in-person and virtually.

Simply choose the "Virtual Only" registration option. Then indicate which clinic you are most likely to attend for each of the five virtual time blocks. We will email all Zoom videoconference access codes to all those who registered for the "Virtual Only" option. Each person will join the appropriate Zoom link to get into the main session. We will then verify registration and move the attendee to their desired break out room within Zoom for whichever clinic they wish to attend.

Online registration is only available through Wednesday, February 24.
