Educational Opportunities

America’s Boating Club has a long history of teaching educational classes that emphasize boating skills which lead to safety on the water.

Each squadron in District 22 offers public safe boating courses and seminars on a wide variety of boating topics.  All the squadrons don’t necessarily teach every course, so you will have to review their class schedules to determine which courses they are offering and their availability dates.

We always welcome our students and community members to join America’s Boating Club and be a part of District 22.  This gives you the opportunity to be a part of the fun and camaraderie, and help teach boating safety classes.  The national America’s Boat Club website provides additional information about memberships, such as discount benefits, Merit Marks, and more.

Boating Courses Advertised On Squadron Websites

Some District 22 squadrons may also be offering the Boating Courses listed in the Complete Education Catalog of All Boating Courses, but they are only advertised on their squadron’s website.  Because of this, you are also encouraged to check each squadron’s website within District 22.  The box below has a map with pins which shows where all the squadrons are located.  Clicking on a pin displays information about the squadron and their website.  Boating courses which are only listed on a squadron’s website are identified on their education or calendar page.  Many of these squadrons provide unique boating information and experience about their local area.
