Barb Knight Honored with Annual Barefoot Grant for Junior Girls

By Shannon Klahn

We are very excited to introduce the Barb Knight Junior Girls Athletic Grant.

Barb Knight was an avid barefoot waterskier and a devoted supporter of the sport. She always enjoyed a day on the lake as well as supporting and encouraging fellow skiers on the dock. Her smile warmed any room she entered.


Barb passed away on September 19, 2019. To honor Barb and the positive influence she had on the sport, loving members of her barefoot family have established a $500 annual grant in her name.

This grant is intended to assist junior girls with costs associated with the sport of barefoot water skiing, such as lessons, equipment, travel costs, tournament registration, etc.

To apply for the grant or donate toward it for future years, please fill out this Scholarship Application – Form and email to Shannon Klahn.  DUE JULY 1!

We have a selection committee made up of women barefooters to pick the winner!
