SYC Sailing Classes


The SYC Sailing Program offers classes for any age sailor. Several levels of junior and adult training are offered.

Summer Programs: Please see Sign-Up link above for upcoming Program dates!

The Polywog Program, for the youngest sailors, gets kids together and offers a basic introduction to boats through fun activities with our staff, relatives, and friends.

Basic Junior Classes include fundamental sailing skills, boat rigging, knots, weather, and water safety. Junior classes are conducted using a variety of boats, depending on the students’ skill levels. Advanced classes emphasize more nuanced sail trim, boat balance, racing tactics, and starting line techniques.

Adult Classes can be tailored to the students’ interests; basic sailing, competitive sailing, or cruising.

All of our instructors have passed the rigors of US Sailing instructor training and are certified. For a brief review of the scope of US Sailing’s Programs please visit their web site.

The Shreveport Yacht Club is cultivating a community interest in sailing. If you have any friends who might be interested, please let us know. One does not have to be a Club member to participate.
