Support WWU Wakeboard Team!
The WWU Wakeboard Team is hoping to bring back the practice location that our team was founded on! Our goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of the 2019-2020 school year!
As Spring 2020 nears, an extraordinary opportunity has presented itself to us. This opportunity is to bring back a two-tower cable system to our stomping grounds, Bow Lake, just 15 minutes away from Western Washington University's campus. The return of our beloved cable park would dramatically bring our team to greater heights thanks to your contributions!
Who is the WWU Wakeboard Team?
Since 2014 the WWU Wakeboard Team has comprised of a range of beginner to expert wakeboarders with a passion for spreading the love of the sport! We practice once a week at a two-point cable system at Valley Wake Park in Abbotsford, BC, and occasionally we ride behind boats depending on the willingness of local drivers within the community. We also compete twice a year at some of the top-rated cable parks in the U.S. in Sacramento, CA. Our recent accomplishments include bronze in the women's beginner div. at Rip the Rails 2019 in Sacramento, first and second at the 208 BC Provincials, silver at the 2018 Amateur Wakeskate Nationals, and gold and silver in the beginner's div. of Cinco de Mayo Cable Comp 2017 in Sacramento.
How will your support help our team?
By donating to our VikingFunder you will be directly supporting our effort to create more accessibility to our team! If enough funds are raised we will put all donations toward the long-term lease of the cable system at Bow Lake. This would be monumental for our team in that we will have all-access to a practice location that is only 15 minutes away from campus! More accessibility to our practice location means that we can bring more students out more often to try wakeboarding and gain mastery of the sport. This would significantly help to maintain our team as a sports club at Western as members will gain much more out of multiple practices a week rather than our current single opportunity to practice on Saturdays. A local practice location also means that members will not be required to possess a passport, an issue that has affected current and potential teammates in the years since we lost the cable at Bow Lake.
Thank you for considering our cause for your support! We may be one of WWU's smallest clubs but we have the biggest heart! We love our sport so much that we drive hours just to ride, crossing international borders for regular practices and at least two state borders just to compete. Help us gain more opportunities to practice our sport by donating to our VikingFunder so we can bring back our local cable park!
