Our normal weekly pool sessions, consist of a mixture of try-dives, dive training, and kit testing.
We have a well established method to organise this, namely,
- Guests who are doing try dives, meet in the leisure centre foyer with one of the training team who introduces them to the instructor and talks through some pre-dive checks.
- Members who are diving/testing/training, bring their kit and store it tidily in the foyer of the leisure centre so as not to cause obstruction - assembling any bits they can before we go in to save time on poolside.
- Once the pool is clear of the previous session, our Lifeguard takes over supervision of the pool and will let our members onto the poolside. We can then take diving kit onto the poolside and walk back through the foyer to the changing rooms.
- We normally divide the big pool in half and use one side for diving activities and the other side for swimming and non diving activities.
- Please note: We only use the large pool. Use of the small pool is strictly forbidden as we do not pay to hire it and there is no lifeguard supervising it. Members are asked to ensure children in their care follow this rule.
- At the end of the session, our Lifeguard will signal it's time for the divers to surface and start de kitting, usually by banging something metal on the steps to give an audible signal.
We also run some pool sessions that are dedicated to particular training activities or fun sessions, such as rescue training or fun activities like playing 'Octopush' which is a sort of underwater hockey.
