Our mission is to provide opportunities for personal development, teamwork, and community involvement through water sports.
The Brainerd Ski Loons is a new, non-profit, community and family-based water ski show team that is proud to have joined the Brainerd Lakes Area. Now we need your support to help make an impact in our community.
Our goals are to instruct members in the disciplines of show skiing while building character, confidence, and self-esteem. Show skiing provides a way for people to have fun and perform, while also gaining valuable life experience through teamwork and challenging activities.
Our team provides a unique opportunity for our youth to work side by side with community members of all ages to achieve a common goal. This is an aspect that is not commonly found among youth team sports and we believe it adds value to our community. This is one of many things that the Ski Loons bring to Brainerd. Cooperation across a large age spectrum will help prepare our youth to be great community members in the future.
In our first year as an organization, we have already accomplished so much. For the community, we put on two amazing water ski shows for over 700 people that were free to attend and open to everyone. All of our 40+ members grew as individuals through water skiing this summer while building character, confidence, and self-esteem. Some achieved the milestone of getting up on water skis for the first time in their life. Others tried the new disciplines of barefooting, pyramids and ski jumping.
To the future - We are going to continue to achieve our mission by putting on more free community ski shows and even starting a Learn to Water Ski program next summer. We also plan to provide wonderful skiing opportunities to more members as interest in our group has grown.
