OUR EFFORTS AS TAHOE AMBASSADORS
Lake Tahoe Waterman Association was born in 2010 with a passion from both Anik and Jay Wild for Paddling and Lake Tahoe. Founded by Elite Athletes, the initial premises was to get kids on the water enjoying human-powered paddle sports. Since our 501c3 Non-Profit Organization evolved with the mission to be a steward of the land and the lake, promote human-powered watercraft education and safety. Additionally, to work with a network of organizations with the mission to conserve and protect our playground that is Lake Tahoe and its public access. Our organization is home to Team Tahoe Waterman and Junior Waterman educational programs.
Our paddle programs, the competition team, and the training groups offer a unique, dynamic waterman environment in which participants master the mental, physical and technical skills of paddle sports in preparation for competitions and/or overall fitness, water safety, and aquatic lifestyle.
Part of Lake Tahoe Waterman Association’s mission is to be a steward of the land and the lake, this mission has been satisfied with LTWA being assisting in being the keepers of our basecamp, Patton Landing Beach a public access to Lake Tahoe (for humans and their four-legged friends!) LTWA is assisting with the maintenance and upkeep of the property. We schedule ongoing beach clean-ups, routine maintenance of the natural landscape, and maintenance of the California Tahoe Conservancy land at Patton Beach in Carnelian Bay, California.
