The Victorian Branch Waterski Team, established prior to 1992, ski’s on average over 200 Scouts, Venturers and Rovers a season. The Team offers safe, but action-packed, water-skiing opportunities in fresh water for Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rovers and Leaders looking for plenty of challenge with heaps of fun attached. Our activities are at all times under the control of qualified and experienced instructors and we can accommodate all levels of competency from first-time skiers through to those who are already accomplished in the sport.
Generally speaking, there is no specific season for Water-Skiing but the Branch Water-Ski team is usually fully operational from February through to March. We mostly operate from Lake Nillahcootie near Mansfield but, by special arrangement, it is possible to operate from other suitable venues. For safety reasons, the selection of venues is at the discretion of the Water Ski Team. We will happily run activities for a full weekend or just single day events. We can provide up to four ski-boats for larger parties. Whether it be a unit, troop, crew, group, district or even branch event; the VBWST can customize every element of the activity to make your skiing trip an experience that you will remember for a lifetime, at a price that your group can afford. Cost for a weekend away can be as low as $25 per person.
