After an exciting and successful pilot program last year, we are pleased to once again offer this cooperative initiative with Beachland Elementary, Gifford Middle Schools, and this fall we will add Osceola Magnet School as well. Each school squadron of 15 to 20 youngsters learns to sail while enjoying the beautiful Indian River Lagoon and getting hands-on experience applying science, math, and environmental concepts. The program is taught by professional sailing instructors and utilizes elements of the US Sailing STEM Education Initiative curriculum.
The 10 weekly sessions take place at the Youth Sailing Foundation’s campus, which provides indoor and outdoor classroom space, all necessary boats and equipment, and waterfront access just south of the 17th Street bridge. Transportation from school to the facility will be provided.
Registration for Fall 2019 will take place once school resumes in August. For more information, call our office at 772-492-3243 weekdays 9:00 to 3:00, or email.
