Youth Camps & Scholastic Programs

Afterguard Sailing Foundation

Youth Small and Keelboat Classes with Afterguard
In 2006 Afterguard began hosting OUSD schools in 'for credit' courses during the school year. These have been a 2 to 4 hr weekly course series of our basic courses. Over their full semester, or trimesters, receive PE credit and enhancement for math, science and other standard discipline courses. If a student stays with sailing, can continue past the basics to achieve ASA certifications in progressive courses.  ASA course series have been college accredited in 7 states.

In 2008 Afterguard began summer camps. The summer camps are 1 to 4 weeks of learning to sail to venturing out in SF Bay in both small and keelboats.

Afterguard began non-profit education programs in 2003. In 2006 Afterguard Youth programs became an OUSD contract provider conducting sailing as an off campus Math and Science enhancement/support course series for 9-11th grades with PE credit over a 32 week and a Community Service/first job program for a few students. Currently working with youth from YEP, Street Academy and Arise High Schools.


Afterguard organizer Mary SwiftSwan has a history developing new programs for ASA and for youth programs for College, High Schools and youth groups: Mills College, Cal State Monterey Bay, Oakland International High School, Sea Scouts, Boys and Girls Club and Oakland Parks and Rec. Programs can be as short as one day or as long as 32 weeks if held over a scholastic year.

Cost of programs depends on numbers attending.
