Adaptive Athletes Bound for Worlds
 
Once again 5 Saskatchewan Adaptive Water-skiers dominate the team selection to  Water-ski Wake-board Canada's  World's team.
The World Disabled Water-ski Championships will be Hosted by Australia, held at Myuna Bay Resort, outside of New Castle N.S.W.
6 skiers qualified for the Worlds, one from B.C. and the bulk of the team from Saskatchewan.

The North Sask Adaptive Water-ski club has 4 skiers chosen.
- Reining World Champion Ashley Baerg of Dalmeny, SK will lead the team into her 3rd Worlds. Ashley will compete in the MP5, classification for sit ski division athletes. Ashley plans on repeating as Female World Champion, in the Trick event, the Jump event and the World Overall Champion.
- Veteran Pete Andrews of Saskatoon, competing in his 5th Worlds was named Captain of the team. Pete has added duties as the team's jump event coach. Pete will compete in all three events in the MP3, classification for sit ski division athletes. Pete has been chasing the Jump World record and hopes this is the time.
- Veteran Ryan Riehl of Saskatoon, competing in his 4th Worlds, will compete in all three events in the V2 classification for Blind skiers. Ryan missed the last Worlds due to heart Bypass surgery. Ryan is hoping to get his form back and bring back a medal.
- Nolan Barnes, of Saskatoon, formerly of Yorkton, competing in his 3rd Worlds will compete in all three events in the MP3, classification for sit ski division athletes. Nolan has ramped up his training the last 2 years and is set for a podium finish at these worlds.
The South Sask Adaptive Water-ski club has a rookie skier qualifying.
- Blake LaMontagne, of Regina, formerly of Wawota, competing in his 1st Worlds will compete in all three events in the MP4, classification for sit ski division athletes. Blake has skied just 3 years, but placed in the U.S.A. National Championships, last fall, with this making a statement, that he will make some noise at these worlds.
World's 
 Team leader, David Wassill, of Saskatoon has this to say, " Despite these World's being at the end of our winter, we have great skiers and great skier leadership, It may be tough to improve our traditional 4th place finish as a team, but we have added some real talent this year and we are experienced. If the world's was just a jump event we would dominate. The jump event is like hockey to Canadians, we put it on the line and we win."
