Ballyhass Scholarships 2018/19
Our fifth season of scholarships have started
The Ballyhass Scholarship program has been a staple of our winter seasons for the past several seasons. For those that dont know we select up to 20 local students to take part in a free 16 week course to learn wakeboarding and kayaking. It started as way for us to improve our coaching and push the sports we love. Our only goal us to make sure the scholars have the best possible experience of the sport throughout the course no matter what. In the intervening years alot of the scholars are now members of staff or wakeboard members and some have even gone on to study outdoor courses throughout the country. This definitely warms our hearts. The scholarships can take alot of time and dedication at times but if we continue to get results like this, it is a no brainer for Ballyhass Adventure Group
This year if we have expanded our Kayaking scholarship to included an element of rock climbing. This will be the first year where we have offered a multi discipline scholarship and we are excited to see what the students get out of it. Each week we will be giving an update on the progress of the scholars which will hopefully demonstrate the level of progression you can have in outdoor pursuits.
Stay tuned for more and more details of the 2018/19 scholarships.
