Our Discover Scuba Intro is an Outreach Program for Schools is designed for teachers, school phys-ed programs & youth groups, sports teams/clubs especially in rural areas in the province. It is an introductory experience for youth to discover the exciting activity of scuba diving. Students/youths will learn the very basic techniques of scuba diving and then will have a hands-on, fun experience discovering scuba diving in a local swimming pool. This exciting program has been used to enrich the physical education program curriculum in schools for over 30 years.
The Council delivers this introductory Discover Scuba or Try Scuba as an outreach program for Alberta schools, youth groups and pool facilities in Alberta upon request for a cost recovery fee. This helps to ensure continuation of this program for the future. All equipment and an experienced instructor (over 38 years with PADI) are provided. Teachers - for more info: click "FAQ"s below.
