Ask your Athletes to update their EMS Athlete Profile


The EMS Athlete Profile offers a variety of information an Athletes. Currently there are available: Contact address, phone number, email address, emergency contact (important for minors), social media links (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube), CV information, etc.


In the section “Identity: Athlete > Athlete’s Information” of the Profile page, an Athlete can also share information like Started Skiing, First Competition, Favourite Discipline, Hobbies, Sponsors, etc. and upload 4 action pictures and 1 portrait. Please ask your Athletes to complete their EMS Profile. This information is useful for the speakers at competitions and certainly also interesting for the public.  


Add attachments, bulletins, pictures and logos in EMS


Any document added to EMS should not exceed 3MB. Site pictures, competition logos and athletes pictures in the Athlete profile should be .jpg files, preferably landscape format (Athlete’s portraits can be in portrait format).


Reminder for the skiers who participate in Waterski Tournaments in the USA


Very important reminder for your skiers! To participate in waterski tournaments in the USA, they need a US25 yearly unlimited IWWF license. They are also responsible for making sure that their Federation code and EMS ID number are correctly updated in the US membership system as per following example:


Lion Scoring System – Organisation  


As previously announced, IWWF is now the contract partner of Emmanuel Lion for the Scoring System and no more the European Confederation. It has finally been decided that the Confederations/Federations will not be charged for using it anymore but are requested to submit their wishes for changes, corrections, enhancements, etc. to the EMS Project Team for clarification with the respective World Sports Councils Presidents and coordination with Emmanuel Lion, EMS being the leading system.
