Learn To Dive

Learn To Dive (LTD) is a recreational diving program designed to introduce people of all ages to the exciting sport of diving in a safe and fun environment.

Divers receive step-by-step instruction from the 1 meter springboard, and as their skills advance, from the 3 meter.

This program is for all ages: there is no minimum age or swimming level needed although participants should be very comfortable repeatedly swimming in deep water during the 1-hour classes.

Our instructors are trained in providing a solid core base of skills to ensure safety and proper progression. The coaching staff may recommend that a diver in the recreational programs consider advancing to the Pre-Competitive or the Competitive program. If your child shows interest in a more intensive diving program, please speak with the coaching staff.
