Youth Program


The Hoofer Youth Program offers quality on-the-water instruction with a focus on fun and learning. Courses in Sailing, Windsurfing, and Racing are open to youth ages 10-18 and range from beginner to advanced.

Programs are designed to teach outdoor recreation skills while encouraging youth to have fun and develop personally in the areas of communication, self-reliance, sportsmanship, and respect for others. Hoofers promotes a constant awareness of safety, emphasizes the importance of working together, and teaches students to adapt themselves to the forces of nature.

See you all back in Summer 2022!

Unfortunately, the Hoofer Youth Sailing program will not be offered in the summer of 2021. Due to the restrictions related to COVID-19, we determined we could not offer youth sailing instructions in a manner consistent with Hoofer and Wisconsin Union health policies.

We are exploring a family sail program, where experienced sailors will take families out on the water to experience sailing. Stay tuned for details!
