The USA Water Ski & Wake Sports National Get on the Water Program coincides with the anniversary of Ralph Samuelson being the first to successfully water ski on July 2, 1922, in Lake Pepin, Minnesota. It was designed to provide a fun, non-intimidating environment where participants can learn to water ski for free.

ALL Get on the Water events are sanctioned by USA Water Ski & Wake Sports with certified drivers, instructors, and safety officials.
