If you have not been named in the squad and have aspirations to be so in the future, pleased be assured that the Waterski and Selection committees are monitoring all skierโ€™s scores for future potential.

You do not have to be in the squad to be considered for Team selection, or to be entered as an Individual if you are qualified, and Wild Cards where applicable will also be made available outside the squad where appropriate.
Team selection is based on picking skiers to obtain the highest place in the team competition and will be the best balance of all Slalom, Trick and Jump skiers to obtain this within the rules for the Championships.

IWWF Resolution

The IWWF has made the following resolution concerning the conflict in Ukraine.
3rd March 2022
The IWWF Bureau met today and, in light of the current circumstances, agreed on the following resolution:
a. IWWF will not invite or allow the participation of Russia and Belarus athletes and officials in all IWWF approved events.
b. IWWF will not approve any event in Russia or Belarus.
All IWWF Confederations and affiliated Federations are required to comply with this resolution.
This decision aligns with the International Olympic Committeeโ€™s recent recommendation.
The IWWF is appalled by the war in Ukraine and its impact on innocent athletes, and deeply regrets that they are caught in this situation. The IWWF is looking forward to a speedy resolution of the conflict after which these athletes and officials will be welcomed back.

Competition Calendar 2022

This is the published calendar so far for key World, E&A and British events. The British events are now on the IWWF Event Management System (EMS). Once the Organisers have opened the Registration skiers may use EMS to enter these events. But you do need an IWWF Competitors Licence to enter Ranking List Events. You can get this licence by firstly buying your British Competitors Licence thru the BWSW website. Once you have done this we will make you active in EMS so you can buy your IWWF Licence. If you have any problems with this process please email Kylie@bwsf.co.uk or gvnkelly@aol.com. Lets hope for a great season on the water.

The 200 Club Draw – January 2022

The 61st draw of “The 200 Club” has taken place and can be seen on the following link:

The 200 Club January 2022 Draw

The winners are:

1st Sylvia Philips No. 123 ยฃ516.75
2nd Charlie Emmett No. 146 ยฃ387.56
3rd Stuart Scott-Ely No. 10 ยฃ258.38
4th Glen Campbell No. 177 ยฃ129.19

Since the start of FoT a gross amount of over ยฃ207,000 has been raised and after prizes of ยฃ56,055 we have ยฃ151,000 to invest in our various activities. Of this ยฃ91,000 has been spent over the last five years and we have over ยฃ60,000 in reserves going forward. This is more than we had anticipated due to lesser activity with Covid, particularly in 2020. We have provisional spend budgets of ยฃ50,000 in 2022 and ยฃ55,000 in 2023, so lots to do.
This has only been possible by the generosity of all the supporters of FoT. Thank you.
