CSC Youth Sailing Instructors: CSC’s lead sailing instructors are all US Sailing certified and are also certified in CPR and First Aid. They all have extensive sailing and racing backgrounds on the local and national levels. We also use “Instructors in Training” who have extensive knowledge of the boats.
Boats: CSC conducts classes in Optimists, Lasers (4.7 and Radial) and 420’s. We match sailors to boats based on age, experience and size.
Age Requirements: The recommended age for sailors is 8 to 18. Those younger are typically not ready. The average class age is typically 10-12 in the morning sessions.
Membership Requirement: The CSC Youth Sailing Classes are provided as a benefit of CSC membership* and are open to the children and grandchildren of Regular Members and to the children of Associate Members. The class fees cover only a portion of the total expense of the classes, with the club subsidizing the rest of the expense out of general funds. For more information on membership, click on the “Membership” link on the home page.
Texas Youth Race Week Coaching/Boat Charters: If your sailor attends Class Session I or II, then coaching and a charter of a CSC owned junior boat for Texas Youth Race Week (TYRW) will be provided at no charge. If your sailor does not meet these participation qualifications, then the fee for coaching by CSC coaches and/or for the charter of a CSC owned junior boat at TYRW will be $250.
Nature of Youth Sailing Classes/Racing Program Activities: CSC is not a licensed or certified child care provider. The Youth Sailing Classes, Race Team Practices and Racing Clinic are for the purpose of providing sailing instruction and coaching for sailboat racing, not for child care. Our coaches are certified by US Sailing to provide sailing instruction, but they do not have any certification as child care providers. CSC makes no representation that the Youth Class fee is deductible as a child care expense, or for any other purpose, on your federal income tax return. You should consult your tax advisor before you take a deduction for any membership, class or other fees related to CSC’s Youth Program.
* Club membership is open to any person of good moral character and of age 18 or older.

Youth Sailing Discussion Forum
In addition to the email list, a Youth Sailing Forum has been added to the CSC website to keep you abreast of youth sailing activities at CSC and throughout Texas.
Use of Club-Owned Boats
Here are the rules for using the club-owned Optis and Lasers.
All youth sailing programs must have parental support to be successful.
For our program to thrive, we always need parents to volunteer for:
1. Rescue boat duty for Sunday afternoon sailing:
2. Help with maintaining the youth shed and equipment
3. Help with youth social and entertainment Activities.
4. Also, since CSCs youth program is focused on developing
youth racing sailors, we need parents who will support their child's
participation in local and statewide regattas. You do not need to
own your own boat, as CSC has club boats available for use in regattas.
