Try a Dive

What's involved

Before jumping in the pool to spend 30 minutes underwater, you will have a short briefing for 15 minutes from one of our instructors. He/she will talk about SCUBA diving activities, provide information on the club and BSAC, as well as outlining the training programme.

The instructor will then request you to sign a medical disclaimer and ask for the cost of the Try Dive.

You will by this stage be ready to move to the poolside, where your instructor will give you all the equipment you need and will take through the basics. Then you will be ready to go in the water under his/her instruction and enjoy your first underwater experience!


We provide Try Dives for anyone from 16 years old, but note that if you are under 18 years old, you will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You will be requested to sign a Medical Disclaimer (to be signed by parent or guardian if you're under 18 years old). For your information, the Medical Disclaimer can be downloaded here.

The Try Dive cost is included on our costs page.

You do not have to bring any equipment with you, all you will need is your swim wear and an old tee shirt or rash vest (if you have got one) to go in the pool.

The Club meets every Wednesday evening at 20:00 at:

Stafford Leisure Centre
Lammascote Road
ST16 3TA
