  • San Gervasio Junior Challenge


    For 2018, Jolly Ski and RadaR Skis are excited to introduce the San Gervasio Junior Challenge.

    Among the Pros and Amateurs that have been featured in the San Gervasio Pro Am since 2014, the iconic Italian tournament will now host this invitational, head-to-head event for the top 4 Under 17 Girls and Boys in the World.

    These great Junior athletes will receive a formal invitation by Jolly Ski and RadaR Skis to compete during the San Gervasio Pro Am, for a total purse of $2,000, divided equally between Girls and Boys.

    “Every year we organize our Pro Event at Jolly Ski, we strive to improve some aspect of our tournament” says Matteo Luzzeri, San Gervasio Pro Am organizer and Pro skier. “This year, we decide to invite the very best Junior skiers in the World. We want them experience what it is like to ski a professional water ski event, and in our opinion the head-to-head format is where Pro skiing should go. After all, these young rippers will be the Pros of tomorrow!”

    “Having elite level tournaments for Junior Skiers is something we’re very passionate about here at Radar!” says Brooks Wilson, RadaR Skis Brand Manager “Allowing these kids to compete alongside and in the same format as professionals is something we believe is monumental in defining the start of their professional careers.”

    Invited skiers will be selected according to the IWWF Weekly Ranking of Tuesday, March 27th 2018. Invited Junior athletes will not pay any entry fees and compete in the following format:

    • One preliminary round on Saturday morning to determine head-to-head seeding.
    • Bracket of 4 on Saturday early afternoon after first Pro qualification round.
    • Bracket of 2 on Sunday early afternoon after Pro bracket of 8 
    • Cash price breakdown of $500 for first place, $300 for second, and $200 for third.

    Invited Junior athletes will be recognized during the Skiers’ dinner meeting on Friday evening and handed their personalized bibs for the event.
