SBJSA YOUTH SUMMER TRAVEL RACING PROGRAMS
Note: Sailors may choose to stay in our Learn to Sail (LTS) program until age 18, or progress to Adventure Sailing (AS) or Performance Sailing (PS) until age 18, if Level 3 requirements of LTS are attained.
Similarly, sailors may stay in either the Adventure Sailing (AS) program or the Performance Sailing (PS) program through age 18. If there's a keen interest in racing, sailors may join the Travel Race Team (TRT) once they have demonstrated Level 3 competency in the Performance Sailing (PS) program's curriculum.
