High School Sailing

Sailing is a fabulous life long sport that not only caters to all ages, but all skills, abilities and mindsets. Introducing sailing to school students will increase students' awareness of an excellent option for physical activity available to them for the rest of their lives.

Sport leaders are encouraged to contact your local yacht or sailing clubs or your Provincial Sailing Association to explore possibilities of offering students the experience of trying out the great sport of sailing.

Keen parents, students and teachers are encouraged to check out what the Central Okanagan Sailing Association School Program (PDF) has done to integrate sailing into the Canadian public school system.

Currently, there is a very active high school program in the United States which Canadians schools are welcome to join. For more information, please go to www.highschoolsailingusa.org
