MKSC Youth Squad

The Youth Squad members are between the ages of 8 and 16 and range from total beginners to advanced students working towards becoming Assistant Instructors and Dinghy Instructors. Classes are sometimes divided into Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced but we also like to mix it so that less experienced sailors get a chance to sail with experienced sailors helping with confidence and peer to peer learning.

Sessions are roughly every two weeks (Sunday) and last about 2 ½ hours each and we are working towards awarding children with their RYA Stages working at their pace and ability throughout the season.

Traditionally we used to run Youth Squad between April and October but we have taken the decision to run the Youth squad throughout the year so that children get a better chance to experience different weathers and so that what they learn isn’t forgotten during the winter months.

 Some of our more Advanced sailors compete with in the MKBYSA (Milton Keynes & Bucks Youth Sailing Association) Open Champions Club allowing them to visit other clubs, compete in youth only races and the top youth compete at a National level at the NSSA in July each year.
