Junior Gliding for Under 25s and Under 18s
We are delighted to have been accredited as a British Gliding
Association Junior Gliding Centre.
This Scheme is designed to encourage younger people (under 25s and under 18s) into our sport.
Okay so it is just for fun!! However gliding offers a diverse range of practical learning ranging from
how weather systems work to the nuts-and-bolts of flight.
Gliding is a sport of skill; teaching judgement, co-ordination and self-confidence.
Discounted Membership fees and free glider hire for Juniors are features of our already very competitive
prices. In addition to this, various
grants and funding
are available to Juniors.
Juniors (together with a parent or guardian if appropriate) are very welcome to visit us on
any Saturday from 11am onwards or please contact Mike,
our Junior Gliding Centre Co-ordinator for further infoimation.
Add us to the Curriculum of your local School or College
Gliding is a complimentary fit to your educational objectives whether in Sport,
Personal development, practical Physics or the Natural environment and biosphere.
We are currently seeking contacts with local schools and colleges to explore ways of working
together to add gliding to your list of activities.
Gliding is essentialy a safe sport but as with any other human activity, a culture of safety and adherance
to operating procedures are essential to maintain a zero accidents record. Our Members and guests should
adhere to our Code of Conduct whilst at the Club.
