About Us

Promoting the sport of show skiing since 1984

The Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club is a non-competitive water ski show team - nicknamed the Pewaukee Gators - that provides weekly, free family entertainment to the Pewaukee, greater Milwaukee and Lake Country communities.


 Each year we entertain thousands of guests, hold community and adaptive ski clinics, and host the Pewaukee Lake Gator 8s - a barefoot figure 8 endurance tournament​ - in the fall.

The club is excited to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2024! The club is scheduled to perform 17 ski shows this year at Pewaukee's Lakefront Park.

Our Story

Our origin story begins in 1984.
An era of big hair, big air, and bright colors. When water skiing exhibitions and competitions were in prime time on a little cable TV network called ESPN. 

One day, a classified in a local Lake Country newspaper appeared: Anyone interested in forming a water ski club on Pewaukee Lake should meet at the beach at the specified date and time.

That meeting led to the club incorporating in 1986, with its non-profit mission of promoting the sport of water skiing through instruction, exhibitions, shows, tournaments and other community activities.

And we're proud to carry on that tradition 40 years later.
