The Junior U.S. Open Water Ski Championships are coming to West Chester.
The event, which is free to attend, will take place next weekend, June 29-30, at Voice of America Park.
“We are excited that Butler County’s Voice of America MetroPark has been chosen to host this prestigious youth sporting event,” said Mark Hecquet, executive director of the Butler County Visitors Bureau. “Having hosted this event in 2008, we’re looking forward to welcoming USA Water Ski and their top athletes back to Butler County.”
The two-day event will feature 100 of the nation’s top junior water ski athletes under the age of 21. The competitors will compete for titles in tricks, jumping, and top overall categories.
The championship event is expected to have an economic impact of around $155,000.
While the event is free and open to the public, motor vehicle permits are required to enter VOA Park. Permits are free to Butler County residents. Non residents can purchase an annual pass for $10 or a daily pass for $5.
