The Clemson Watersports Club is the place for students who want to get out on Lake Hartwell to waterski, wakeboard, and wakesurf. Our dock is located at Y Beach and houses our two boats. Right now, we have a 2018 Mastercraft NXT20 for club use and a 2019 Malibu Response TXi for our competitive collegiate ski team. We purchase a new boat every year, swapping back and forth between club and team boats.

You do not have to be an expert. Our club members range from those who have been on the water their whole lives to those that have never attempted any watersport activity before.

Bring your own gear or use ours! Be sure to check out our FAQ page! See you on the lake!


The Clemson Water Ski Team competes in the South Atlantic Conference (SAC), which consists of schools from Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Clemson has won the prestigious SAC Championship numerous times.

The team regularly practices on Lake Hartwell which surrounds the Clemson University campus. The team operates a AWSA approved towboats at all times with a yearly upgrade.

Any skier who would like to compete at the collegiate level should seriously consider joining the Clemson Ski Team. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us by email at
