Notts County Becomes A BYS Club
Published 16:24 on 19 Dec 2018
So what is a BYS club I hear you ask, it stands for British Youth Sailing Recognised Club (2018-19) which replaces Champion Club.
This gives us access to resources and may help us access other funding, and of course recognises are active and thriving Youth Scene.
A certificate and plaque will be on display in the clubhouse.
to quote from RYA site: Why
The key challenge for our sport is to encourage more young people to start participating in sailing and progress into racing. This is best done at club level and a successful junior and youth training and racing programme will enable a club to flourish. The BYS Recognised Club status distinguishes those sailing clubs with a commitment to the development of junior and youth racing and race training, which is delivered in a safe and fun environment.
In order for a club to achieve BYS Recognised Club status, a club must demonstrate that it runs a regular race training programme within at least one of the BYS Recognised Classes. In order to achieve the high standards of training that are expected of BYS Recognised Clubs, training must be delivered by qualified RYA Coaches to RYA Recognised Training Centre standards (or equivalent) with a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy in place.
