Junior Activities Program

Our junior sailing, tennis and aquatic program is second to non. All summer long, our staff instruct juniors as they gain and advance their skills, compete as desired, and most importantly, have FUN. Our juniors make friendships and memories for life. These programs are for all skill levels and ambitions. There is even a Salty Dog program for juniors age 4-5 years old.

Junior Sailing

Juniors take to the water in small instructional groups. The groups are experience-based enabling maximum value of instruction and, of course fun. The program offers many opportunities to compete in regattas at the club and at other clubs on Long Island Sound. Juniors sail in; Optimist, O'pen Bic, Pixel, 420 and Lasers. Older Juniors also have the opportunity to crew and race in large keep boats in the Junior Bib Boat Sailing (JBBS) program, a nationwide program that formally originated from our club program and leadership. 

"Giving a Junior an opportunity to sail, is giving a Junior the gift of being able to enjoy this lifelong activity, gain confidence and independence."

Junior Tennis

Juniors of all ages take advantage of learning to play all aspects of the game from our professional and summer staff. Lessons are age and skill based to ensure excellent instruction and fun. Juniors may also participate in the club Junior Tennis Team which competes against other area yacht, country and tennis clubs.

Junior Swimming and Diving

Juniors learn or extend their swimming and diving skills with lessons available during the summer season. Juniors may also compete in our all inclusive "Barracudas" Swim & Dive Team; competing against other area clubs.
