Founded over 80 years ago, the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club Junior Sailing & Tennis Program has provided instruction to generations of LEHYC sailors and is one of the longest running programs on the East Coast! The program's success has resulted from striving to achieve the following objectives:

  • To have fun throughout the program which includes: sailing, tennis, trips, team and family functions & socials
  • To teach seamanship, sailing and racing skills, and sportsmanship in a safe and fun environment
  • To enable children to acquire, through the whole experience of the program, life-long values such as sportsmanship, consideration for others, teamwork, and self-worth
  • To teach children how to sail to the best of their ability and interest, and to encourage growth in skill and competence, through both individual and team participation
  • To encourage the acquisition of competitive sailing skills in regattas and in races
  • To gain exposure to the game of tennis, learn basic skills and stimulate interest in competitive tennis through tournament play
  • To encourage the acquisition of competitive tennis skills through tournament play

Our Jr. Program is intended to expose children and their families to the enjoyment and uniqueness of sailing and tennis. This will be accomplished under the supervision of competent, involved instructors, with oversight and direction by the Program's Facilities Director and Program Coordinator and assistance by the stewardship of volunteer adult leaders.
