Sportivate starts again on 16th September 2017 – a few places still remaining

Bluebird Deaf Water Ski Club, in conjunction with Active Norfolk, are excited to announce that Sportivate will be starting again on Saturday, 16th September 2017 for our second Sportivate session of the year.

Sportivate is an initiative funded by Sport England, which aims to encourage inactive 14 – 25 year olds to try new sports and activities and we then enable continued participation beyond the end of the Sportivate Course.

At Bluebird we are offering you the opportunity to try water skiing and/or wakeboarding for the first time, or maybe hone your skills if you have already tried before, with our friendly and fully qualified coaches. You will need to be available on Saturday mornings from 9.30 a.m. until 12.00 noon over six consecutive weeks, from the 16th September through until the 21st October 2017.

The cost of the entire six week course is only £36.00 and payment will be required before the start date. This will include hire of all safety equipment and wetsuits, as well as expert tuition and all you will need to bring along is your swimwear, a towel and a sense of adventure.

Participants will be following British Water Ski and Wakeboard’s Cutting Edge programme and will be presented with Certificates to celebrate their achievements along the way.

Places are limited, so if you are interested, please contact us for more information and to book your place.
