Aberdeen Aqua Addicts Membership and Club Dues Information

The Aberdeen Aqua Addicts Waterski Team is always looking for new members.   We welcome people of all ages and abilities.  A common misconception is that you need to know how to waterski to join the team.  Quite the contrary.  Our mission is to promote and teach the sport of waterskiing so we would be more than happy to help you learn everything you need to know.  Our team is built around creating a safe and fun, family environment where members can develop individual skills, promote teamwork and create lasting friendships.  In order to facilitate this mission and support growth it is both important and necessary to establish and collect a membership fee. Water ski equipment, boats, maintenance, gas, oil, etc. are an on-going expense.  However, we always strive to keep membership dues as low as possible.  We are built on the generosity of our community, sponsors, fans, and hard working volunteers.  If you have questions or are interested in joining the team please send us a message.

The membership dues and user fees are as follows:

*Anyone who participates on the water (skiers, boat drivers, spotters, riders, etc.), on the dock, or in the acts of the show even as a non-skiing member must be an active member of USA Water Ski. We encourage all family members to become USA Water Ski members.  USA Waterski membership provides liability and participant accident insurance coverage.

Every Member will need to sign a Waiver

Aqua Addicts Waiver & Release

*Please print the Waiver, sign, and turn in at the team office at Dahme Lake.

Trial Period:
The Aberdeen Aqua Addicts will offer a trial period for potential new members. Each potential member will be allowed to ski for 3 days within a two week time frame at no cost.

Learn to Ski Clinic:
The Aberdeen Aqua Addicts will routinely hold learn to ski clinics at Dahme Lake. This is a great opportunity for any interested new members to come out and experience what we have to offer. For more information on our learn to ski clinics click here.

Previous members who are visiting from out-of-town, at the discretion of the board, can ski without paying membership fees under the following circumstances:
*Skiing in shows – at the Show Director’s discretion and without taking the spot of a current team member who has been practicing with the team.
*Three open days of skiing with no fees; additional time at the discretion of the Show Director if the skier is helping with lessons.

If the membership fee creates a hardship, potential team members have the option to contact a Board Member about a reduced membership fee. The hardship request will be presented to the board for approval. The reduction must be approved by the board prior to skiing. This hardship reduction comes with the expectation that the requesting member volunteer whenever possible for some type of work with the ski team (e.g. cleaning boats, setting up for shows, fundraisers, etc.). The skier would still be responsible for USA Waterski dues.

Non-skiers may become members of the Aberdeen Aqua Addicts at no charge.
