Learn To Dive Lessons

The goal of the Learn to Dive Program is to provide the community with an opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport of diving as well as to provide a safe environment for new divers to improve their conditioning, confidence, and self-esteem.

The program offers a proven series of successful techniques that teach a progression of basic skills. Each class is designed to enhance balance/flexibility, strength and spatial awareness while learning the basic elements of the sport of diving.

Additionally, each trampoline is equipped with over head spotting harness. Our qualified instructors are well-trained coaches and USA Diving Safety Certified.
