The IODASA Committee has been working hard to put together a high quality Spring Coaching Clinic tailored to all levels of sailing. The clinic is open to all levels of sailing from Open to Intermediate and Green Sailors.
Note: all State Squad, Development Squad and Training Group Sailors will also be at Goolwa as part of their 2016-17 State Sailing Program and will train in their respective squads. They do not need to enter Spring Clinic.
The aim of the Spring Coaching Clinic is for children to be coached by qualified coaches, instructors assistants, and to improve their sailing skills and gain confidence in their sailing for the up-coming 2016-2017 sailing season. With the 2017 Gill Australian and Open Optimist Nationals being held at Largs Bay Sailing Club between 2-9 January 2017 IODASA is extra keen to get as many Opti Sailors on the water as possible and this is an ideal time for sailors to start their preparations for the nationals.
All children will be classed according to their sailing skills and experience by the coaches and IODASA Committee.
An itemised program of events will be released in the coming days, once meal arrangements etc have been finalised. We can however mention that the plan is to have meals available via the Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club and/or Goolwa Aquatic Club. An egg and bacon brekkie is planned for Sunday morning.
Date: 10-11th September 2016
Cost: $85.- per sailor for 2016-17 IODASA Members or $160.- for non-IODASA Members
Please note – IODASA membership is $60.- for the first child with second and subsequent siblings $50 each, so the incentive is to renew/join IODASA prior to registering for the event. (A link to 2015-16 membership is also given below).
To enter online for the 2016 Optimist Spring Clinic, please follow the link below. The cut-off date for registration is Thursday 8th September after which a late fee will apply. We realise this timeframe is quite short, however this arrangement is necessary to enable the coaches and committee to organise draft allocations for coaching groups.
The above link also incorporates Guardian Consent and Code of Conduct Forms to participate in the clinic. Please note that to participate in the Spring Coaching Clinic you are encouraged to be a current 2016-17 financial IODASA member.
