The International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA) announced today that the Junior Ski competition age limit is lowered to 10-years-old.

“I am excited about the opportunity to get the younger riders involved in our sport at an earlier age, ” said IJSBA Managing Director Biorn Tangeland. “Several countries allow 10-year-old racers, but they have not been able to participate at World Finals because of the previous age limit of 14,” continued Tangeland.

This change affects Freestyle and three Junior classes in the ski division only. (Juniors are not allowed to race in the Runabout class.) They are; Junior Ski 10-12 Stock, Junior Ski 13-15 Stock and Junior Ski 13-15 Limited. Riders from these classes will be eligible to compete at the World Finals. Additional information will be available in the near future regarding qualifying for World Finals and registering to participate at regional races.
