Best of WaterSki Spirit

Every year, hundreds of college athletes compete around the country, for the chance to come together for one prize, the NCWSA Spirit Award. This highly competitive award only goes to the loudest, proudest and most enthusiastic team at the NCWSA National Championships. Judging consists of best sideline cheering, most coordinated school spirit, and best attitude. Here are some of our favorite moments in NCWSA Spirit.
