The TY Sailing Member Program has run for a number of years now, very successfully between the Dun Laoghaire clubs and has proved to be a great way to keep our teenagers involved in sailing, prepare them for instructing and build lifelong friendships so we really hope they get involved.
We have concocted a fantastic program for the 220/21 Transition Year (TY) students! It has been challenging to establish a TY programme whilst the current Covid Restrictions are in place as a result all dates, numbers and prices may be subject to change and cancellation depending on the then current Covid Situation.
Please note that the TY Program can only run if supported by volunteer parents. We will be looking for your assistance throughout the year and you will also be asked to volunteer during individual course registration sign ups…
A summary of what we are planning to offer during the school year is provided below.
PLEASE STUDY IT CAREFULLY, THEN COMPLETE THE EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FORM HERE
Please complete the Expression of Interest form by 10th July 2020 so we have an idea of our population.
You will be asked to provide certain details but this is NOT a formal sign-up for each course.
SOME IMPORTANT POINTS OF NOTE IN RELATION TO THE PROGRAMME:
- Each course and module is available independently so you can pick and choose as you like.
- Formal sign-up will happen for each activity through the central site.
- Courses must be paid for on booking.
- If courses are oversubscribed we may keep waiting lists and or put on additional courses.
- Please understand that deadlines must be observed. Once we reach a deadline date, we will book and commit to the necessary resources for those who have signed up to that course at that point.
- Coaches and facilities have to be paid in advance, therefore, if you book and pay for a course and your son/daughter cannot attend we will not be in a position to offer a refund as we will have planned and budgeted to run courses on the basis of the committed bookings.
- Similarly, because of the scale of the programme and the need to book resources there will be no option for late entries. However, there are multiple running’s of several modules so hopefully the sailor can be an early sign up to a subsequent course.
- In some elements we have restrictions on numbers and courses will be allocated on a strictly first come first served basis.
- The program can cover up to 50 sailors and is being run by volunteers. So, to that end please understand that the need to have clarity and structure for the benefit of all.
Let’s hope it’s a great few months
