Evolution of the Skills Kit

The Skills Kit was first offered in 2021. Based on customer feedback, we worked with the Inland Lake Yachting Association (ILYA) to develop two complementary products:

  • ILYA Racing Curriculum – 2022 edition. Set of 25 lesson plans with chalk talk points, 3-6 learning activities for each skill, and performance reminders.
  • Skills Kit – 2022 edition. Aligns with the ILYA curriculum but adds depth and variety. The Skills Kit can stand alone or as a companion to the ILYA Racing Curriculum.
