GSA INSTRUCTOR TRAINING COURSE 2013
St. George — The Grenada Sailing Association is proud to announce the GSA Instructor Training Course for 2013.
The newly-elected representatives of the Grenada Sailing Association Executive recently met with Minister for Sport, the Hon. Emmalin Pierre and Permanent Secretary Mrs Veda Bruno-Victor, to give an update on the on-going work of the Association, and to discuss its plans for the future.
The Association identified one of its top priorities as being the Junior Sailing Programme. A primary aim of the GSA is to assist and support the clubs that are established and implement a standardised, structured training programme, so that young people learn to sail competitively to the ISAF International standards.
It was agreed that this goal complemented the initiatives of the Ministry – particularly the new Community Sports Programme – and that assistance would be available via Olympic Committee Funding. Further funding was raised with many thanks to generous donations from Camper & Nicholson’s Port Louis Marina, Budget Marine, Island Dreams and Horizon Yacht Charters.
The Grenada Sailing Association has successfully arranged for the internationally qualified coach Mr Earl Tobias to lead the upcoming GSA Instructor Training Course. Mr. Tobias, Head Coach & Chief Instructor of the Trinidad & Tobago Sailing Academy, will be training young Grenadian instructors from the 2nd to the 6th of September at the Grenada Yacht Club. The 12 participants in the course have been selected from the various clubs and are pleased to participate in this fantastic opportunity.
