SAC Youth Programs
The Soaring Association of Canada offers a number of incentives to younger Canadians in order to encourage greater participation in soaring.
SAC Youth Bursary Program
Based on years of proven success, retention of youth and the addition of new members hooked for life into our sport from examples in Ontario, SAC is pleased to announce that a nationally coordinated youth support effort has come to fruition with its monetary backing to the tune of $10,000 per year. This commitment will continue for the next three years. It is a great leap forward for our sport, excellent for promotion to the thousands of glider pilots under 30 across the country, encouraging to the keenest new members of our sport and a concrete way to enhance soaring here in Canada.
Please go to the Document Vault in Info/General Forms for more information and the application form.
