Texas A&amp;M has a club. Unfortunately we just started last semester. We can't offer scholarships, but we have a lot of good riders. Most who are freshman. We do have a 2001 as a team boat.

A lot of midwest universities have club teams. That means they cannot give scholarships however the tournaments are fun and the parties are out of control. I go to the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater and we have an annual wakeboard tournament in the spring. There are some big teams all over the country at the different universities.

You can take wakeboarding as your PE Credit at Texas State university. 2hours twice a week on cable at TSR.

Most Southern schools have wakeboard specific teams, and in the future I'm sure almost all will. But in reality, there will never be scholarships offered for wakeboarding. If there happened to be, it would be a small percentage and those would all go to pro's of that time, who would probably be better off not going to school. There are only a handful of schools left that offer waterski scholarships, and those all go to pros. Your best bet would be to see what organizations affiliated with wakeboarding offer yearly scholarships for a lucky member. Good luck.

There are only a few schools that offer waterski scholarships, and A-dub is right they only go to bad-to-the-bone skiiers. <BR> <BR>But look into student athelete scholarships. If your kid is riding pro wakeboarding and taking a full load of classes there is a lot of money out there. USA Waterski gives out scholarships. I got it one year.
