Water sports tasters for young people

Young people will get the chance to stick their oars in and make some waves in free taster sessions at Yeadon Tarn this summer.

Young people aged 10 to 16 will have the opportunity to try out canoeing, kayaking, raft building, sailing and off road biking, sailing and activity center thanks to funding from the outer north west area committee.

Each young person will have a go at one or two of the activities, to help them discover what opportunities there are on their doorstep, which could possibly lead to a long-lasting interest.

Along with the taster sessions, there are also school packages that have been introduced for primary schools.

These taster sessions will offer young people a great chance to try their hands at a range of water sports with trained staff at the sailing and activity center.

It is a fantastic opportunity for local schools to try team building activities and give just a taster to young people of the activities that are available in their local area.
