Annual dues are only $125 per year for an individual or a family.  There is a one time $200 initiation fee. A prospective member will be sponsored by a current member so you can learn how the club works and meet fellow skiers. You must attend a work party and a general membership meeting. When these few requirements are met, head to the next meeting and the membership will vote to approve.  Funds are due at that time. A site key and garb are given as well. You will receive regular emails about club happenings or ski community announcements.

  We are a USA Water Ski affiliated club which requires all members to have "Active" membership status with USA Water Ski. Meetings are held regularly at Robert's School in Acworth. 

See our introduction flier for details.
