Albatross START Diving is now based at our brand new diving facility
THE ABBEY SCHOOL KENDRICK ROAD READING RG1 5DZ
Clean and warm with gallery seating for parents/spectators
Albatross run START Diving programs for children of all ages and abilities. We also run sessions in adult/masters diving
Our Learn to Dive scheme has been developed to teach children to dive in ways that are both safe and fun without the pressure of competitive squad training. As children develop their diving skills they have the opportunity to progress through the Swim England START Diving Badge Scheme (levels1-7). Everyone taking part in Learn to Dive is also invited to join the fun at our annual Christmas Gala.
The START Diving program is open to all; the only requirement is that children must be to able to swim in deep water without goggles and climb out of the pool without the use of steps.
Training session are 45 minutes and consist of a 15 minute warm up and 30 minutes in the pool.
Sessions now run throughout the year including school holidays.
All fees are paid in advance.
New times for 2018 at the Abbey School weekdays after school – please email our learn to dive coordinator to find out which sessions would be best for you.
We believe diving can be enjoyed at all levels; both recreationally and competitively. When divers on the START Diving program reach a certain level they may be invited to try out for the Right Track competitive squad if they are interested in exploring competitive diving.
