Wake boarding - A fully funded female empowerment programme for girls ages 14-18 years.   You are here: Home » News Detail

10th August 2017

Following the success of our Climbing Minds programme, I’m absolutely delighted to let you know we are now piloting a fully funded female empowerment programme for girls ages 14-18 years. 

The aim is to support young women either receiving, or waiting to receive therapeutic interventions to learn how to wakeboard with support from positive female role models.

Wakeboarding is an exciting watersport that is much like snowboarding but on water. The rider is attached to a board and pulled along the water by a cable.

The 6 week course starts on Tuesday 29th August, 6-8pm and takes place at Club Wake Park at Grendon Lakes. The course is free for participants and all equipment is provided.

We’d also welcome any individuals who may benefit from this as a personal relationship building activity with siblings/adopted siblings or parents/caregivers. As such, we welcome referrals for siblings also and may consider offering a place to mother/caregivers if it benefits the young person. 

We only have 8 spaces on the course. 

Exceptions

The course is not suitable for any individuals with history of spinal injuries or severe head injury. It is currently not accessible for wheelchair users.
