The Shropshire Sailing Club has a strong family focus and we have over 130 Junior and Youth members from age 8 to 18. Activities are planned throughout the year and include Youth Training and Junior Days as well as a family weekend with a camp-over.
The club is an approved RYA OnBoard centre that promotes sailing through enjoyable, safe, and fun activity sessions. It also encourages all of its younger members to progress through the RYA training scheme from Stage 1 to Stage 4 and on to Assistant Dinghy Instructor (from age 12) and Dinghy Instructor (from age 16).
All of our young members are invited to be part of our Youth sailing sessions. These are held fortnightly from April to September, the dates for which can be seen in the club's calendar. For the younger members, the focus is on fun and there is a coaching programme for those who want to race. The RYA does not support training for the under-8s but the club has three RS Tera that can be used by this age group under the supervision of parents or carers.
