In light of current events affecting most countries, to ensure the safety of organizers and athletes and to show social responsibility, the IWWF and USA Water Ski & Wake Sports have agreed to reschedule the 2020 IWWF World Junior Waterski Championships to a date to be determined in 2021.
This will remain as the 2020 I WWF World Junior Waterski Championships, so skiers born in the year 2003 or after will be eligible to compete and the IWWF will provide Federations with updates as soon as available.
The event, originally planned for August 2020, will be held at Pickos Ski School, located in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, minutes from the top beaches in the United States.
The IWWF will continue to monitor the world-wide coronavirus situation while the organizer advises on any travel restrictions leading up to the event. Federations will be informed ahead of time if there are any further changes.
