Irish Sailing Junior Summer Squads
The aim of the Irish Sailing Summer Squad programme is to prepare a team to compete at an international level. The programme consists of domestic training camps, followed by event support at selected internationals. Led by our head coach with support from Sports Med Ireland, Irish Sailing’s partner in strength and conditioning and physical training, it focuses on the development of the sailors. The number of sailors on the squad will be determined by safety, with the secondary objective of teaching the sailors how a high-performance youth sailing team works at home and abroad.
Further information including the selection document, programme schedule and costs will be available here nearer the time.
Keep an eye on this page for more information nearer the time.
