Irish Waterski Federation
There are 17 IWWF affiliated clubs throughout the country, with excellent facilities and top class coaching available.
The Irish Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IrishWWF) is a non-profit organization and is the National Governing Body in Ireland for all forms of Waterskiing, Wakeboarding, Disabled Skiing and Barefooting. Its members are affiliated Clubs. It is also affiliated to the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) which is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as the international Federation for all Towed Water Sports. The IWWF is a member of ARISF, WADA, GAISF and IWGA. The IrishWWF has a distinguished history dating back to the 1950s in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. In the early days, each territory had a stand-alone Association. Discussions which began in the mid 1980s on combining both Associations resulted in the formation of the Irish Waterski Federation. With the growth of Wakeboarding, in 2009, the title was changed to the Irish Waterski & Wakeboard Federation in line with many other National Federation. Following extensive national research in 2007, canvassing the views of all active IrishWWF Clubs, agreeing the priorities, the vision, the mission statement and main goals, the five pillars on which the sport is now currently based were agreed and are set out below. These are the main elements in our Strategic Plan which is updated every year as outlined on site in DOCUMENTS.
