Exactly what does your venue offer to educational visits?

JB Ski can offer a school sports activity that will enhance any programme and even encourage those children for whom the regular school sports curriculum is less appealing.

JBSki has introduced thousands of children into the sport through our 2 hour taster sessions, regular visiting school wakeboard clubs and also our multi activity days that prove a popular choice for secondary school and college groups.

Our two most popular school trips are;

Full/Half Activity Days – Enjoy the ultimate summer school trip enjoying a range of water sport activity days! Full package includes;

-              2 hour beginner kneeboard experience.

-              1 hour aqua park session.

-              15 minute banana boat rides in groups of up to 12

*Do note there are a range of other activities available including Dragon Boat Racing, Beach Volleyball, Stand Up Paddle Boarding & Ringo Rides just to name a few! 

2 hour taster sessions/Multi Visit Trips. – From a 3 hour morning visit to every week through the summer term.

Cable skis are an ideal way to take to the water with a fun, safe and affordable activity designed to accommodate small to large groups all at one time.

Taster experiences are the perfect introduction to the cable. This course is predominantly a kneeboard course and last for approximately 3 hours, 2 hours on the water and 1 hour for health and safety and getting ready.

Start by learning the theory and techniques you need on our slower trainer system before advancing out onto the main four corner cable attempting to negotiate full circuits. Those successful may get the change to progress onto wakeboards or waterskis, although this is not guaranteed for every participant in their first session.

Multi visits then enjoy the thrill of continuing with wakeboarding on their return sessions following the BWSW Cutting Edge Awards program to assist in their development in the sport.

2 hour session:   £14 pp.  (Multi trip session can be legible for funding for a discount on six sessions, please get in touch to find out if this applies to your group).

All the equipment on the day is provided as is all risk assessments, S.O.P’s & Insurance documentation.
