Aktion Parks, a subsidiary of Correct Craft, has announced plans to build its third boat and cable park, Elite Cable Park, in partnership with the USA Water Ski Foundation.

Elite Cable Park will be part of the USA-WSF’s new headquarters and training center to be built at the $25 million Lake Myrtle Sports Complex in Auburndale, Fla.

On Lake Myrtle, a 76-acre freshwater lake, the ECP will be staffed with experienced coaches offering lessons in wakeboarding, wakesurfing and other water sports of all skill levels.

Like Aktion’s other parks — the Orlando Watersports Complex and Miami Watersports Complex — ECP will provide Hyperlite equipment for all lessons and host events that feature award-winning Nautique Boats.

“The Aktion Parks team has an outstanding reputation in the industry for delivering top service with integrity and we are excited to have them operating this park,” USA-WSF’s executive director Tracy Mattes said in a statement.

“With more than 100,000 visitors coming through the park each year for multiple sports, including soccer, baseball and youth football, the water sports complex has a built-in audience and will provide opportunities to create synergies with other sporting and community events.”

“We are thrilled to partner with USA-WSF to develop this outstanding new cable park,” Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin said. “ECP will live up to its ‘Elite’ name and offer our customers exceptional experiences.”

When it fully opens in 2018, the ECP will be a training facility and a destination to experience watersports.

In addition to ECP, USA-WSF’s new facility will include a new headquarters building, three tournament ski lakes, a cafe on the water and a pro shop.
