Frequently Asked Question
BUT I HAVE QUESTIONS . . . .
Just what is the Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team? Our Team operates as a non-profit organization with a focus on the development of youth and families in a great sport – water skiing. Funding is primarily from contributions, paid show revenues and sponsorships.
Our current membership is over 100 ranging in age from 6 to over 60. We encourage family participation in a sport where they learn responsibility, teamwork and leadership. Our skiers include novices to experienced professionals who participate in practices, shows, competitions and social events. Not all our Team members are skiers! Non-skier support is vital to our Team and includes land and water support for our Team’s success.
How do I get to “Tower Lake?” Our show site is in Oldsmar (behind the Oldsmar Flea Market). From Tampa Road, take Racetrack Road north, just past the Flea Market, to the first light at Douglas Road. Turn left (or west) onto Douglas. We are the 2nd dirt road entrance on the left (look for the Ski Show signs) and follow to our lake and parking.
What time should I arrive? All public shows will be at 6:00. The pre-show features our newest members/skiers showing off their new skills and usually includes our youngest members. This starts at 5:30 PM. The 6:00 show schedule does not change unless we have a road show conflict.
What concessions are available? We have our Concession “Oasis,” which houses a range of drinks and snacks, including hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, nachos, frozen pops, chips, candy, etc.
What are the seating arrangements? We have bleacher seating. And we have plenty of grassy areas for lawn chairs and blankets near the stage for easy visibility of all water and stage acts.
What are the parking and ticket costs? The shows and parking are free to the public; donations to our Team are welcome and very much appreciated for the evening’s entertainment. We have parking attendants, so please let them know if you require handicapped assistance.
How long are the ski shows? The shows run around 45 minutes.
Are these show productions for children and families? Absolutely! We are very family oriented, and our shows are for everyone. We perform theme shows every week to keep our audiences entertained.
What types of water ski acts will we see? Our site shows include such acts as barefoot, jump (we have a jump ramp), pyramids, ballet lines, adagio doubles acts and trio acts, swivel skiing, novelty acts (such as sky ski, shoe skis, wakeboard), etc. Many of our skiers have skied at Cypress Gardens and Sea World, so this is the type of show the audiences will see plus more.
What happens if it rains? Serious inclement weather may affect our schedule. We ski in the rain (but not in lightning); we encourage everyone to check out our website at tampawaterski.com for our schedules as well.
What if we have a large group? Arriving early will secure your spot on our lawn area; and one large picnic table is available in the viewing area.
What bathroom facilities are provided? Portable sanitation units are provided.
How do we handle trash? Thank you for using our receptacles located near the Concession Oasis and the bleacher area.
