Specialty Swimming Lessons

The goal of the Learn-to-Dive program is to introduce adults to the skills of diving as a sport and educate them in a correct and safe manner. This program has skills that follow a logical progression to ensure that all participants can complete all levels if they wish. The teaching methods include games and fun activities that teach safety and skill developing while providing atmosphere for participants. A cornerstone of the program is the promotion of diving safety; knowledge that will carry over for a lifetime! The skills and progression of each dive level have been organized so that the student diver can complete all levels of the program if they wish. All participants receive a waterproof booklet within which they can chart their own progressions through a bronze, silver, and gold stage of each of the four levels. Bronze, silver, and gold stickers are provided and should be affixed on the appropriate certificate in the booklet after the student diver successfully completes each stage of a level. Prerequisites: Must be comfortable in deep water and have completed SK6.
