The Western Canadian Watercross Association (WCWA) promotes Jet Ski racing in western Canada. This year’s tour consists of eight rounds over four weekends throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. At each event there is stand-up / runabout racing, freestyle and a v-wake competition which was introduced in 2016.
We offer different types of classes no matter what your experience level. If you’re new to the sport we have a beginner’s class where you can try out the course and have Canada’s top riders teach you the ropes. Or if you want to test your skill you can line up against the 26 time world champion Mike Klippenstien in one of the pro classes.
For 2017 the classes consist of Beginner Ski, Beginner Women’s Ski, Novice Ski Stock, Novice Ski Open, Novice Masters Ski Open, Sport Spec, Freestyle, Pro Am Women’s Ski, Pro Am Ski Lites, Pro Am Ski Open, Pro Am Vet Ski, Amateur Ski Open, Expert Ski Limited and Pro-Am Runabout Open.
Each weekend is filled with hours of high octane fun. The racing combines speed, skill and sheer raw power producing non-stop action. While Freestyle provides improbable feats of artistry and insane aerial acrobatics. Racing typically concludes around supper time but the family time continues well into the evening.
Since 2012 the WCWA has more than doubled its rider entries continues to grow every year. If you make it to one of our races you will notice that we are one big family and everyone is willing lend a helping hand. If someone’s ski breaks, there are always multiple people willing pitch in and figure out how to fix it.
