So you want to learn to dive but you’re not sure if diving is the sport for you? Book a try-dive with HGSAC! The first time you breathe underwater is an experience to remember, but don’t just take our word for it. Discover it for yourself. HGSAC try-dives are conducted by fully qualified BSAC instructors and give you the opportunity to discover what diving is all about. A try-dive involves poolside introduction to the equipment followed by a dive in the 3m Reddish Vale High School pool (for use by SCUBA divers only during the try dive session). It's relaxed, fun - and focused on you! There's no pressure, no expectations and the try-dive will be conducted at a pace of your choosing. If at any time you are worried or uncomfortable, simply stand up!
All equipment needed for your try-dive is supplied by HGSAC. This is regularly maintained and complies with all applicable safety requirements. All you need to bring is a swimming costume, t-shirt (to stop the SCUBA equipment rubbing on your shoulders) and towel.
Minimum try-dive age is 14. Under 18s much be accompanied by an adult who is more than welcome to participate too if they like!
