About Alberta Sailing Instructor Forum

The Alberta Sailing INstructor FOrum (AS INFO) is intended to be a compilation of entries from a wide range of Alberta Instructors and Coaches about all aspects of coaching/instructing at various levels.  The purpose is to build a searchable public log book to go to when you need to learn something, to browse for fun, to stay connected or to develop as a coach/instructor.  Just like your own log book AS INFO can be used in your role as an athlete and as a coach: both sorts of entries might be helpful for instructors to improve their (our) sailing or for instructors and coaches to improve their (our) instructing/coaching.

Please use the comments section or email albertasailingcoach@gmail.com if you have something to contribute to the Alberta Sailing INFO, this forum depends on coach participation!

Keep entries below 250 words or for video or audio shorter than 2 minutes.  Just hit the highlights.  Coaches are encouraged to talk with the blog poster if they want to know more.
