June 20 - 22, 2018


The 2017 Sparta Eastern Region Junior Development Clinic will be held on Wednesday, June 20 through Friday, June 22 in Sparta, VA.  Once again, Timberlake will serve as home base, with the Powell and Ware families hosting the participants for overnight accommodations.  Up to 30 young skiers in the Boys and Girls 1 through 3 divisions will be treated to top notch coaching in all three skiing events.  Volunteers from around the VA water ski community team up to take over Timberlake, Lake Holly, Lohr's Lake, Lake Maracossic and Jennings Pond for two full days - Wednesday and Thrusday.  The clinic will culminate in a three event tournament at Timberlake on Friday.


Pro skier, Corey Vaughn will be heading up the clinic and coordinating the coaching roster.  Corey himself participated in the Sparta Junior Development Clinics when he was growing up.  We're lucky to have such a dynamic and talented coach and leader for this program.  For more information on the 2017 Junior Development 3 Day Clinic, contact vawsfed@gmail.com.





Participants in the Three Day Junior Development Clinic are required to compete at EITHER their own State Championship tournament OR at least two other USA Water Ski sanctioned tournaments.  Check the Tournaments & Events page for a list of tournaments in Virginia this summer.





Junior Development is a volunteer based endeavor, and we could not put on these clinics without the help of a virtual army of volunteers.  We have lots of volunteer opportunities for those who would like to help out.  We have put together an online sign up for volunteers and parents who would like to offer their help with things like transportation, food, chaperoning, coaching, driving, safety, etc.  Take a look at the 2018 Junior Development ONLINE SIGN-UP to see how you can help.
