Event Overview:

BAWSC Slalom Ski Clinic Coming Friday June 21

Improve your slalom skiing skills on Friday, June 7 with individual instruction by world-class slalom skier and coach Greg Badal at Diablo Shores private ski lake in Brentwood.

Who:  Greg Badal, 2016 Big Dawg champion
, National Record Holder (4 balls @41 off), and 2016 USA Water Ski National Champion (Men's 3) has volunteered once-again to teach the BAWSC slalom clinic for up to 10 fortunate club members.

Where:  BAWSC will be renting access to the exclusive Diablo Shores slalom lake, (in Brentwood ≈ 15 min. from Discovery Bay), to enhance your skills with the flattest water and the ultimate slalom environment while pulled behind a new, 2019 Ski Nautique slalom boat. 


Cost and Signup:  After event registration your check can be accepted for one of 10 member spots. Your check for $60 reserves your spot for two coaching sets.  Normally this level of coaching would cost over $200/person.  Last day to register is Monday June 17.  Due to the popularity of this event, register on the web site now and get your check in early.  Once your register you will receive instructions where to mail your check.

Schedule:  It will be a 2 round slalom clinic with one-on-one coaching by Greg.  Figure on about six passes down the slalom course or about 20 min. per person. The morning sessions will begin at 8:00 AM with one skier scheduled approximately every 20 min. and ending about 11:40. We will break for lunch from 11:40 to 12:40 PM. The afternoon sessions will begin at 12:40 PM, and end about 4:20 PM, with the same rotation as the morning sessions.

the latest Goode water skis, boots and other accessories with expert advice and setup from Greg.

You don’t need to have ever skied through a slalom course to benefit from Greg’s coaching. Since the instruction is customized for your skill level, you can choose to ignore the slalom course or simply use the buoys for timing of your turns. Nor do you have to be a great skier to benefit from this clinic. However, please see minimum eligibility requirements below.

BAWSC MEMBERS ONLY (NO GUESTS). You MUST be able to easily get up on a slalom ski, be able to turn and comfortably cross the wake. This is NOT for brand-new beginners and is NOT a "learn to slalom ski for the first time” clinic. You must bring your own ski, vest & gloves.
