Junior Sailing Programs at Brookfield Place

Offshore Sailing School NYKidsSail at Brookfield Place

Youth sailing NY introduces kids and teens to great adventures. Our NYC youth sailing program Includes not only learning a new skill, it also provides a platform for kids to work together as a team. Sailing helps kids approach life with increased confidence in their abilities on and off the water. It gives them a feeling of self-esteem. Most of all youth sailing is fun! Your kids and teens will love this challenging and rewarding outdoor activity on the waters surrounding Battery Park City.

KidsSail is for 7-17 Year Olds

The NYC KidsSail youth sailing program is available for kids and teens, especially those who live in lower Manhattan south of Canal Street. KidsSail is a week-long program, Monday through Friday, three hours each day from 9-12 each morning and 1 to 4 each afternoon. Each session, morning and afternoon, can take a maximum of twenty 7-17 year olds. Effort will be made to keep the kids in their own age range groups. Parents may enroll youth in the morning or afternoon session for the week. Depending on availability there may be the option for double sessions.
