Learn To Dive - Youth

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 on the 1 meter springboard and, as their skills advance, the 3 meter springboard.

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 class.

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.
