Youngsters invited to water sports campus
Tenerife Cabildo, through the public company Ideco, is organising a water sports campus as part of the Carnival celebrations and it will be held at the facilities of the Tenerife Marine Sports Centre (Cidemat), located in Santa Cruz.
The activity, which will take place between February 26th and 28th, is aimed at children between the ages of six and 17.
Participants can choose be-tween two types of campuses: a multi-activity one, where they can practice different marine sports such as sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and stand up paddle, or opt for an exclusive windsurfing cam-pus. In the latter case, the required age is over ten years.
Minister of Education, Youth and Sports of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Concepción Rivero, highlights “the importance of instilling sports habits from an early age” and adds that “it is essential to have adequate facilities that favour and make sport practice attractive among the population.”
The price of the three days of the Carnival campus, which will take place from 8am to 2.45pm, amounts to 57 euros, although you can choose to hire single days at a rate of 21 euros / day. Campus participants will receive theoretical and practical training on the four sports modalities so that they can have a first contact with different water sports. The only indispensable requirement is to know how to swim.
In parallel to the campus, two new activities have been organised for Wednesday, February 26th and Thursday, February 27th. It is a wind-surfing and sailing course (initiation level) for children between seven and 17.
Those interested can formalise their registration through the Cidemat website www.cidem-at.net or request more informa-tion via email email@example.com or by calling 922 597 525. They can also go to the offices of the centre of Monday to Friday from 8am to 3pm.
