Helping young people develop confidence and skills on the water
At Colwyn Bay Watersports we are passionate about sport and it’s benefits. Sport transforms young people’s lives, health, motivation and self-esteem.
But awareness and understanding of water sports including sailing, windsurfing kayaking and canoeing often falls behind other mainstream sports such as rugby, football and cricket.
We want to make sure that young people have the chance to find out about these activities and where they can go to get involved.
We have rolled out our summer programme to schools across Conwy and Denbighshire with interactive sessions, videos, volunteer workshops and a strong emphasis on water safety and prevention. Following feedback from teachers we are now looking to re-visit participating schools and build on Take The Plunge with First Aid courses ahead of the next summer season on the North Wales coast.
