Since 1958

The Bantam Lake Ski Club of Connecticut was established in 1958 by a group of local water ski enthusiasts. It is the oldest, continuously operating water ski club in the United States. We are a very active club and pride ourselves on a family oriented membership of over 100 members.

Our Water Ski Show

Every year during the second weekend of August we hold our Cypris Gardens style water ski show at Sandy Beach in Morris, CT. Come watch us perform all sorts of acts including multi tier pyramids, jumping, ballet lines, barefooting, kids ski lines and more. For a donation of $10 per car you get a great day of family fun at the lake!
