The NCYC Youth Squad Program is a structured & progressive coaching plan for young sailors aged 14 to 20 years. It aims to provide opportunities to develop keelboat sailing skills through regular training, coaching support and high standard competition.
Training is conducted on the NCYC's fleet of Force 24 and Elliott 6 inshore keelboats, ideally suited to assist transitioning dinghy sailors into keelboats and to develop further the skills of existing young keelboat sailors. High end competition against some of the major Clubs in Australia provides many opportunities to extend racing skills. Developing the young sailors match racing skills is a key component of the program and gaining invitations to compete in the major youth match racing events is a focus.
There are so many opportunities available for our young Squad program sailors. We want to encourage them to stay involved in sailing, particularly during their later teenage years and provide the structure for them to continue their love of our sport - creating sailors-for-life. Your support will provide access to these opportunities . . .
