WE ARE THE UNICORNS
A co-ed sports club where waterskiing and wakeboarding is our passion! The club has about 20 members currently on the team, with a diverse range of skill levels. We are always looking for new members to join and share in the experiences of being on the UC Davis Waterski and Wakeboard team!
All that is required is the ability to swim and friendly attitude!
We compete in the Western Region (Washington, California, Arizona) for the National Collegiate Waterski Association (NCWSA). The two seasons are September-December and February-May. The team has a great set up, competes in collegiate tournaments, and most importantly has a lot of fun!
The Lake: Bell Aqua Lake 1
Bell Aqua is one of the most premier private water-ski sites on the West Coast. Conveniently located only 30 minutes from Davis, the site offers a slalom course and a jump ramp. The team is allowed to ski at the site Monday through Friday. Team equipment is available for members and includes the following: jump skis, trick skis, wakeboards, slalom skis, and life jackets.
2015 Malibu Response Tournament Boat
Thanks to our alumni, sponsors, family, and team fundraising we purchased a new boat in the fall of 2017. A special thanks to Sporting Edge Ski & Marine for giving us such a great deal on our new boat!
Thanks to donations from our sponsors, alumni, and local businesses, our team has a plethora of new equipment to suit a variety of skill levels!
From Newbie to Lake Baby, we'll have a ski for you to ride for ANY event! If you have your own gear, feel free to dust it off and rip it! We also get team discounts for select waterski brands such as RADAR, so you can get started with building your own kit!
The Waterski Team at UC Davis competes in about four tournaments per season, which depends on timing with the UC Davis school schedule, and the location of the tournament.
Tournament locations in the past have included Mission Bay, Tate Lake, Lake Nacimiento, Bell Acqua, Fiesta Island, and so many more!
Collegiate tournaments include three events: slalom, trick, and jump. Each event may also be done using a wakeboard!
Competing is optional, but we encourage all members to attend the tournaments to cheer on fellow teammates.
