The LISOT Formula LISOT was born before the USODA Team Trials in 2003 The LISOT formula works - steady growth of sailors & classes No sailor is left on the dock LISOT has always been and continues to be: A totally open team. No dues. Sail as much or as little as you want. Pay as you go – event-by-event. “Club neutral” LISOT provides a complete track for sailors – from optimist development thru 420 and Laser Radial. LISOT attracts full-time, world class, Olympic-level coaches (we have a strong reputation among coaches) LISOT owns four 2-year old RIB coach boats with trailers, marks & ground tackle 5 ©2009 LISOT Sailing Foundation.

What We Have Learned Over The Years Young sailors are motivated by immediate goals Late June/Early July is the most important time for training younger sailors Maintain focus on the mission while developing the pipeline of younger sailors Don’t rush very young sailors – the priority is to keep them sailing (fun and happy, not freezing or disappointed) Coaching at regattas is primarily about supporting “good decisions, more often” Coach/sailor ratio of 7 to 10:1 - balances quality coaching, effectiveness and cost To effectively work with JSA junior programs 7 ©2009 LISOT Sailing Foundation.

LISOT Administration – How It Works LISOT is organized as a New York State Not-for-profit. Incorporated in June of 2005 We are a 100% volunteer organization. Only the coaches get paid. Families actively participate in many ways Interface with their clubs so LISOT can hold practices House (and feed) coaches (for a weekend, a month, a year) Trailer coach boats as necessary (to LI Sound venues and beyond - FL, MN, VA, LA etc.) Store, launch and clean coach boats and trailers Buy and prepare water, snacks and food for each event or practice Arrange group lodging deals for regattas & clinics What LISOT doesn’t do Take responsibility for your sailor each day as JSA clubs do Take responsibility for transporting or housing sailors (handled privately among families) Take responsibility for arranging charters, spectator boats, etc Register sailors for regattas How do you get involved? 8 ©2009 LISOT Sailing Foundation.
