Become a US Sailing Instructor

UPDATE 3/4/2012 – This course was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.  The ASF and AYC strive to provide world class instruction and part of that is the highest quality instructor cadre.  We will offer this class again soon, so please check back!

 

Here’s a great way to improve your sailing while helping kids and adults join this fabulous sport: Become a US Sailing-certified Level 1 Small Boat Instructor.  And….if you use your newly certified skills to teach ASF Classes the ASF will refund you 50% of the course fee.  Beat that!!!!

During an intensive few days, without leaving town, you can pick up the skills and certification you need. The next class is scheduled for the end of March, with five four-hour classroom sessions in the evening on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, March 20-22, plus Tuesday, March 27, and Thursday, March 29. The on-the-water sessions will take place all day Saturday and Sunday, March 24-25.

It’s a ton of fun to introduce people to sailing and the Arizona Sailing Foundation (our AYC educational subsidiary) could use your help. Longtime instructor George Tingom says, “12 or 13 years ago I thought someday I’d have some grandchildren and it would neat to teach them sailing. While waiting for grandchildren to grow I’ve had a lot of fun. You could too.”

You’ll sign up for the class through US Sailing. The charge is $330, less $20 if you sign up at least two weeks in advance. Here’s the link to sign up. (For certification you’ll also need to pass a first aid and CPR course and join US Sailing.)

If you teach ASF classes, the foundation will reimburse you for half your certification fees.

Questions? Of course you have questions. Email George Tingom or call him at 480.948.3814.
