Enrichment through sailing

Mission Bay Aquatic Center to offer Specialty Enrichment program

Attend our open house on Thursday, September 22, 10am-12pm or Saturday, September 24, 10am-12pm.

Every year thousands of kids attend boating and watersports programs at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center. For many this is their first experience with watersports. Most of them will continue to develop their skills in that sport as they grow. For a lot of them this development will translate to interest in other watersports, the marine environment, or the science behind it. For some, this activity will become a life skill that they will enjoy through the ages. One first grader began his experience with us when he wanted to learn to sail. He eventually became an accomplished sailor, is now teaching sailing while studying engineering at SDSU, and hopes to design better boats after graduating. We never know where these early experiences will lead. All students benefit from a group learning experience that cannot be matched in a classroom, and this is the core reason we do what we do.
