  5. 5. 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.

  6. 6. The LISOT Formula Works Optimist  LISOT has placed more sailors on the US Optimist National Team (USNT) – year after year – than any other team in the country.  LISOT has consistently placed more sailors on USODA International Teams  The 2009 Spring US International Optimist Teams have 10 out of 45 sailors that sailed with LISOT  LISOT has represented the US at the Marco Rizzotti Venice Team Regatta four years straight (2006-2009). LISOT was the first team outside Europe to ever win the regatta.  LISOT has represented the US at the Berlin Euro Opti Team Cup for the last three years (2006-2008) 420  7 out of 9 qualified girl teams for the 2009 Youth World Qualifier sailed with LISOT  4 out of 9 qualified boy teams for the 2009 Youth World Qualifier sailed with LISOT  6 out of the first 12 at the 2008 Orange Bowl were LISOT  LISOT has, by far, the largest team at all regional and national C420 events  4 of 6 teams selected for US Sailing’s U18 team have trained with LISOT 6 ©2009 LISOT Sailing Foundation.

  7. 7. 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.

  8. 8. 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.
