No Kids Pics/Videos on website??
My yacht club - a racing-oriented club in New York, with a large Optimist program for junior racers, has added a windsurfing class for the 2007 season. So far, there appears to be a high level of interest, with 14 kids signed up already for the 8 week program, beginning in late June.
I figured that with Starboard's focus on youth windsurfing, there would be lots of cool material on the website that I could point these eager kids to, so they could get an idea of what's possible - to show them what some of the best kids their age are capable of. Believe me when I say that neither the kids, nor their parents have any idea of what kids can do on a board.
But, I have found nothing here on the Starboard website likely to hold the attention of the average 10-13 year old for more than about 2 seconds.
I have found, a page of team "headshots" with bio's (some have links to sailors pages, but none appear to work), and a few press releases and regatta results.
Where are the exciting kids pictures and videos???
You need to get some, and put them in the youth part of your website.
Come on guys, help me out...
If anyone knows of some other websites with good stuff for kids, please post the links here
