The Youth Training Squads Program provides coaching and racing sessions for sailors in Optimists (Green Fleet and Open) as well as in Lasers (4.7, Radial and Full Rig). The Green Fleet is suitable for sailors who have completed the Tackers 'Learn to Sail' Program, where as the Open Optimist Squad is best suited to sailors who are confident on the water in there own boat. The Laser Squad is for those sailors who have moved on from the Optimist and are looking for the next step along their sailing pathway.

Coaching sessions are conducted on Tuesday Mornings, Thursday afternoon's, and Sunday Mornings. Racing is also conducted once a month on Sunday's.
