Visit Lake Charles and Pro Watercross National Championships recently announced that the action-packed competition will take place on North Beach of Lake Charles on August 6-7, 2022. 

“The Pro Watercross National Championships event was scheduled to take place the weekend that Hurricane Ida came ashore on the other side of the state in Southeast Louisiana. With a large portion of the competitors being impacted, we decided to cancel for the traveling safety of fans and everyone involved. The team at Pro Watercross sends its deepest sympathies for the difficulties facing Southeast Louisiana. Looking forward to next year, our competing athletes from all over the country are excited to experience Southwest Louisiana’s hospitality, culture, food, music, and the great outdoors,” said AJ Handler, CEO/Founder at the Pro Watercross National Tour. 

Watercross is simply motocross on Personal Watercrafts (PWC) or jet skis. Athletes compete on unpredictable liquid tracks varying from oceans to rivers to lakes. Competitors challenge the notion of what is possible on a PWC; utilizing the most advanced equipment and reaching speeds of over 85 mph against a full line of competitors.  Driven by their passion, this sport brings an event that combines adrenaline and pure enjoyment of being on the water.  

“We are grateful for the strong working relationship that Visit Lake Charles and our partners have with AJ’s team. Announcing the 2022 dates gives everyone something to put on the calendar that’s positive and energizing for next year. Southwest Louisiana is going to be in for a treat when the Pro Watercross athletes take to the lake,” said Eric Zartler, Visit Lake Charles Sales Director.
