Diving is a fantastic sport for people who love swimming and gymnastics & want to boost water confidence, stay fit, get fit or just test their abilities. Learning to dive is exhilarating, exciting and fun. Jumping from the poolside or diving head first from the highest board gives you a huge adrenaline rush that’s hard to beat!
Developed alongside Swim England’s Learn to Dive framework, Everyone Active’s diving lesson programme is open to individuals of all ages and abilities.
The seven-stage framework takes you from the very basics of diving safely, to performing ever more complex dives.
Once you’ve completed this scheme, we can guide you into diving squads.
Everyone Active courses lessons are tracked and recorded using Sports Passport. Each member is able to view their journey and plot how they are progressing throughout their course or lesson. Each week the members progress will be updated by the instructor ready for you to view on your profile. As your child progresses they will be rewarded with new games, levels and challenges on their profile.
We offer diving courses for people of all ages and abilities. Discover more below.
