Membership: sailors must become members of LHYC to participate in the Youth Program. Becoming a member of LHYC means that households have a voice through voting rights at bi-annual meetings. See Membership for more details.

Prior experience: It is strongly recommended that youth members have at least beginning sailing expertise from either classes or other on the water experience.

Trial period: First time members may use a three week trial period to give sailors a chance to experience the program before committing to membership.

Scholarships: The Minneapolis Public School’s reduced and free lunch guideline is used to determine eligibility to receive free LHYC Youth Program membership. Parents may ask for a waiver to the guideline by special request. A limited number of scholarships are available each year based on program financial and capacity limitations.
