GLYC encourages all Gippsland schools to become involved in our Discover Sailing Program. This year we have on offer the following programs:
The Australian Sports Commission has recently announced the continuation of the Sporting Schools programme, making funding opportunities available to schools to encourage students to participate in more sports-based activities. GLYC in conjunction with Australian Sailing, is pleased to offer the Tackers program to local primary schools.
The Tackers school sailing program is an introductory sailing course for primary aged children. Tackers is a great way to increase life skills such as communication, self-reliance, team work, problem solving and self-confidence. There are two options available; a one-off introductory session or an accredited 10hr Tackers course.
