History of the Team
The Midwest Ski Otters were formed in 1995 with just 13 members. They spent their first summers struggling to ensure they had equipment, boats, and costumes so they could perform their water ski shows for the community. In 2001, they added a Jr. Development team to help focus on training the youngest of members the skills necessary to, not only ski, but also show ski. As they continued to grow, they added a Sr. Development team in 2014. This gave adults (and older teens) an opportunity to focus and learn the skills required for show skiing.
The Ski Otters have come a long way since 1995, and their mission and goal remains today what it was back then:
The Midwest Ski Otters Water Ski Team are devoted to providing direction to the young and the young-at-heart, through a positive learning environment of water skiing. We are dedicated to bringing the Twin Cities Metro Area the best in wholesome family entertainment.
Sunday Night Fever
Get ready to get your groove on as the Midwest Ski Otters take you back in time to when the Bee Gees were king and bell bottoms were far out fashion. Every Sunday this summer you can come watch the action unfold at Studio 61 as the guys and gals try to impress the vrowd and strut their stuff both on (and high above) the liquid dance floor. Before the disco ball falls, you will have a chance to cheer on your favorite dancers as they compete at the end of the night in the ultimate dance off to determine who will be crowned king of Studio 61.
