Club Coaching and Optimist Fleet Development

IODAI is committed to training and development and has initiated a new scheme designed for our Bronze and Silver sailors. 

This is club coaching development. This is to focus on Regional / Smaller clubs to promote the Optimist class.

IODAI are committed to providing a lead coach and some funding to help setup the coaching program.

Each Sailor would be asked to contribute a small fee to participate – this is to ensure commitment to the training. The club then organise the coaching sessions to make it inclusive and balanced to the bronze and silver sailors. 

The IODAI lead coach will assist in structuring a programme with a local coach to give continuity to the club programme after the initial event

Targeting dates would be from May to August, 1 evening / afternoon and weekends depending on the clubs schedule and tidal condition of the local club.
