The GSLA is a not-for profit Association with limited fiscal and personnel resources. Lake community residents benefit from many of GSLA lake-wide activities i.e. high school citizenship awards, contributions to local causes. However, GSLA members have the added benefit of access to our FREE NYS Boater Safety courses. An individual GSLA membership provides access for the enrollee; family membership or higher provides access to the FREE program for the enrollee, their children and extended family until the approved student level is reached. Children must be 10 years of age to enroll in the boater safety class. Temporary certificates are provided upon successful completion of the class. Individuals 18 years of age and older must submit an additional fee to the State of New York for the permanent certificate.
A waiting list will be maintained for non-GSLA members wishing to attend the FREE classes.
Individuals on the waiting list will be notified shortly before the class if GSLA members have not requested all available seats. Non-GSLA members who would like to join the Association may apply for membership either through payment by mail or by using PayPal.
Individuals will be notified of membership and eligibility for the FREE course when payment is received. It is highly recommended that individuals consider PayPal if they require an immediate membership approval.
