Coaching. Water Sports Camp in England

Training at

The watersports training is carried out by instructors at the Ardingly Activity Centre, an institution recognised by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and the British Canoeing Union (BCU). Students at this camp have 6 hours of coaching per week, which will take place in two hour sessions every afternoon. Activities are based around windsurfing, canoeing and raft construction. All these activities take place in the wonderful setting of Ardingly Reservoir, located within the school campus, where the water is maintained in excellent conditions of cleanliness. For the sports coaching, students are divided into groups of 10, meaning the young people get close personal attention.
