Learn to Dive

Want to learn to dive? 

Albatross Learn to Dive is now based at  our brand new diving facility 

THE ABBEY SCHOOL KENDRICK ROAD READING RG1 5DZ

With brand new boards this fully refurbished pool has everything you need to learn to dive

Clean and warm with gallery seating for parents/spectators

Albatross run programs for children of all ages and abilities.  We also run sessions in adult/masters diving

Our Learn to Dive scheme (LTD) 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 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 LTD program is open to all; the only requirement is that  children must be to able to swim in deep water and climb out of the pool without the use of steps.
