SAILRECRUIT: Home for aspiring youth sailors!

WELCOME ABOARD!

Welcome to SailRecruit, a targeted sailing resume submission system and educational tool for up-and-coming youth sailors who wish to share their experience, goals, and passion with professional and college sailing coaches. SailRecruit, like our Airwaves Career Center, is the official youth sailor resume bank of the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA), and we work hard to make sure all the best coaches around the world know about this platform. Inside our system is a wealth of articles, college sailing team profiles, and more, to help sailors learn as much as possible about competitive sailing and college sailing.

  • YOUTH SAILORS Our primary goal is to provide a safe, secure place for youth sailors to create their own sailing webpage! This is a virtual resume, complete with experience, sailing results, personal details, academic profile, and more. Remember, all youth sailors must receive parental permission to sign up.
  • COACHES Coaches and institutions may purchase a subscription, and view resumes, using our custom-designed search engine to hone in on student athletes they seek. All coaches are required to sign up with a verifiable college / high school / yacht club / professional coaching email and contact information.

WHAT COACHES HAVE TO SAY

"SAILRECRUIT is a much needed and long overdue tool for both youth sailors and college sailing programs. I am excited that this resource is finally available, and plan to use SAILRECRUIT as my go-to source for learning about aspiring student-athletes. We are also instructing all of our official recruits for the class of 2025 who may not yet be on the site to sign up."  --Rick Dominique, Director of Waterfront Varsity Programs, US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point 
 "One of the best aspects of SailRecruit is all the articles about getting into college sailing are linked from one page. Anyone looking into colleges with college sailing can start here."  --Ken Legler, Tufts University Sailing Coach

SAILRECRUIT LIBRARY & RESOURCE CENTER

Sailing skill and success is, of course, of interest to college sailing coaches, and our goal is to help facilitate introductions between ambitious young sailors and coaches. Below please find some very helpful articles, videos, and more that can help you demystify the world of competitive youth sailing and college sailing recruiting.
