Youth Scholarship - '15 Intake begins...

Following presentations to Year 12 in the Island's secondary schools in November, 27 students signed up to this intake's preliminary taster sessions. Our Youth Scholarship - Development and Leadership Program is our main community project, delivered by Adventurous Experiences in association with Conister Bank.

 Coaching People, Changing Perspectives
The training program provides scholarships (including 18 months of adventure training, throughout the winter as well as the summer months) culminating in the team of Manx students undertaking an overseas expedition. As our main community project, it is also a focal point of our long term strategy to raise the level of outdoor skills and safety on the Island.

The training team is selected from Adventurous Experiences professional coaches.
20 students have committed to the program, with training sessions on the water beginning next week. Sessions will continue in smaller groups until the spring.

Adventure Club - Sunday morning training

Sunday's Adventure Club training was from Peel, split to two working groups, using the conditions to develop the technical and tactical skills we've been focusing on. 
Looking at the mighty forecast, this Sunday's training will be on the East coast : )

Catch you on the water soon!
