Indiana Sailing Association Volunteer and Curriculum Coordinator Celia Oprinovich was among 9 candidates from around the country who were invited to attend a special training session with U.S. Sailing in late April.
U.S. Sailing is a recognized leader in sail training and certification and Oprinovich attended the special session to be certified to teach the REACH curriculum, U.S. Sailing’s STEM-based sailing curriculum.
The workshop was only available to people who had previously attended U.S. Sailing’s REACH Workshop and had taught the STEM curriculum.
The special training took place in Providence, Rhode Island at the Community Boating Center
Oprinovich’s training helps to build a stronger foundation for the Indiana Sailing Association to continue developing the STEM-based curriculum and academic enrichment opportunities for local students in East Chicago.
