Afterschool Sailing Squadrons

Midway through its third year, the YSF School Squadron program has been a hit with kids and parents from the start! At present, we serve Beachland Elementary, Gifford Middle, and Osceola Magnet Schools, and plans are in the works to expand to a fourth local school next year.  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.
