The Rock Aqua Jay Experience

The Experience

The Rock River at Traxler Park in Janesville, Wisconsin is home of the Rock Aqua Jays Water Ski Show Team, 19-time Division 1 National Water Ski Show Tournament Champions. The team has hosted nearly 60 water ski tournaments and performed thousands of water ski shows at this site. During the ski season the team welcome crowds twice a week to watch the shows.

Traxler Park is a 27-acre (4,000 square meters) community park located in the center of the city. It is situated on the Rock River and is home of numerous community events throughout all four seasons.


Will you be attending as a spectator? As the primary user of the park, the Rock Aqua Jays have made numerous improvements over the last 50 years including the construction of stadium-style bleacher seating to accommodate over 2,800 spectators. Every seat has unobstructed, premium views of the show course. Plus, there are over 1,500 additional seats not in the grandstands.

The park is handicap accessible, and there is designated space among multiple areas in the RAJ Stadium. Plus, we will add more designated spaces for this event.

We will provide plenty of shelter along with tables and chairs to meet crowd expectations.


There is sufficient parking for over 900 vehicles within the park. Additional space is available north of the park for recreational vehicle (mobile campers) – which is within a short distance to the ski site.
