About the Tahoe Cup
Since its inception in 2009, the Tahoe Cup, hosted by the Lake Tahoe Waterman Association (LTWA), has been a combined effort of participants, sponsors, and exhibitors who continue to promote and enhance paddlesport activities and events in the Tahoe Basin. The proceeds from the Tahoe Cup benefit the Lake Tahoe Waterman Association and its mission.
As a local 501c3 non-profit organization, LTWA’s mission is to preserve the California Tahoe Conservancy land that provides public access to Lake Tahoe in Carnelian Bay, and educate the public on the value of non-motorized paddle sports that offer a unique way to live a fit and healthy Tahoe Waterman lifestyle.
We have created competitive paddle teams, provide instruction and scholarships to youth pursuing paddle sports, and host charitable and educational activities that align with this goal. We are passionate about kids staying active and healthy and want to provide an outlet for kids to get strong, fit, and have fun in the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe.
