Learn to Dive

We have three Learn to Dive (LTD) levels which all begin with basics and progress through more difficult skills at each diver’s own pace. Our Learn to Dive levels are based on the LTD Program developed by Diving Plongeon Canada. The program is organized to introduce solid and safe instruction in basic movements for the beginning diver in a graduated structure. The program focuses on the success of the diver as they learn progressively more difficult skills.

In addition to pool classes, we offer classes at our dryland training center. Dryland training allows divers to work on skills through the use of trampolines, land drills, and diving boards that face large crash mats for landing. This equipment allows divers to improve their technique in all aspects of their dives, and develop the body strength required to complete more difficult skills.

Junior Learn to Dive

This is a specially designed program for young divers age 3-5. These classes boast a very small coach to diver ratio (1:3 in the water classes) to maintain safety and keep young divers engaged in the class.

Requirements:
  • Age 3 – 5
  • No prior diving experience is necessary

Youth

This is our most popular Learn to Dive program. It is often children’s first introduction to instructed diving. Youth LTD is for divers age 6 and up who are comfortable swimming in the deep end. There is a small coach to athlete ratio (1:8) to ensure each diver gets the instruction they need to be challenged in the class. At this level, in order to take part in a dryland class, divers must be registered in a pool class.

Requirements:
  • Children Age 6 – 14
  • No prior diving experience necessary
  • Must be able to swim comfortably in the deep end

Adult

This class is offered to divers 18 and older. New divers will progress through the Learn to Dive program at their own pace. Starting with the basics, they will learn successively more difficult dives. Adult divers with previous experience will discuss their diving goals with their coach to make sure the program is suited to their needs. This class is a fun opportunity to try diving and everyone is welcome no matter what skill level they are starting at. Adults with the required skills are welcome to compete at master’s events though out the province.

Requirements:
  • At least 18 years of age
  • No prior diving experience necessary
