Become a TEAM USA Buoy Buddy!

Logo Bouy USA Adaptive Png.png

We, the USA Adaptive Water Ski Team, need to fund our trip to the World Championships this year. We’re the only country to medal in all 13 Worlds (won 8 of them), and we are the only country to win 4 consecutive Worlds, and the only self funded team among our fiercest competitors.


Skiing’s expensive and we know most clubs and skiers don’t have a lot of extra money to contribute to others.  So we came up with a Buoy Buddy Campaign.  A Buoy Buddy is a person, club, business, or organization that contributes $1 per team member to help with our Worlds expenses, estimated at $85,000. 


There are 19 of us on this year’s Team; 14 athletes and 5 volunteer staff. That's just $19 total! (Of course we’ll happily accept a donation of any amount:-) ). 


Please do check us out and share our Buoy Buddy request with your members, family, and friends.

You can donate via the PayPal link below or by mailing a check to USA-AWSWS  c/o Neva Brett 1155 E Pacheco Blvd, Los Banos, CA  93635. (As a USA-WSWS sports discipline, donations are a charitable contribution. IRS EIN # 59-0841458)


We truly appreciate your time and consideration and wish you the absolute best of life!
