High School Sailing Program


High School Sailing

The High School Sailing Program provides an opportunity for all students (grades 7-12) regardless of school involvement to practice, race and travel to compete against other high schools. At the highest level, high school sailing leads to regional and national competitions, summer race teams and collegiate teams. The Midwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (MISSA) provides the regional and national platforms for advancement.

Hoover Sailing Club supports all Central Ohio high school teams. We supply boats, coaches, trailers, and more. A growing number of sailors come twice weekly to practice, and regattas are scheduled many Saturdays or Sundays. Learn more about the program.

Outside of sailing, all students are encouraged to work with their schools and team parents to promote and build the sport of sailing in Ohio. Individual schools may require fundraising. Learn more about building a team for your school.
