Classes are available for all ages, but the listed age groups are:

  • Opti 101 and 102 class: Kids ages 8 to 12 with a class size of ten students.
  • High School class: For junior high, and senior high students.
  • Adult sailing: The ASF also offers sailing classes for adults at Tempe Town Lake and at Lake Pleasant.

Classes fill up fast, and new seasons begin two times a year. Classes typically consist of a little bit of in classroom training followed by lots of time on the water. The time on the water is both educational and sport. The students conduct a series of races around buoy that have been placed on the lake.
