EDISON SAILING CENTER IS DELAYING THE OPENING OF SUMMER REGISTRATION UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE CDC AND CURRENT HEALTH ISSUES ARE RESOLVED. THE HEALTH & SAFETY OF YOUR CHILD AND OUR STAFF ARE OUR PRIORITIES.

WAYS TO HELP AT ESC

Volunteers are welcome! Some options for volunteering are provided below. It is most productive for you and for ESC when we know the date/time you plan to volunteer and the necessary safety checks have been completed.
If you work directly with – or are around youth – we require a Background Check through NCSI and the completion of an online training called Safe Sport. Volunteers should dress appropriately, wear shoes and abide by the no weapons, alcohol/drugs or smoking policies of ESC’s approved Policies & Procedures, as well as a reminder that only appropriate language should be used –no profanity ( volunteers should request a copy of the document for their reference). Volunteers must sign a waiver and wear a life jacket at all times (on/near water).
