Frequently asked questions

When can a child start the Diving lessons?

It is recommended that children complete swimming lessons up to stage 7 before moving across to diving.  However, swimmers are usually start to dive from Level 5 onwards, as long as children can swim 25 metres unaided and are confident in deep water they can start diving lessons.

What’s new about these Awards?

In these new awards the skills in the early awards have been simplified to ensure that they are suitable for those with no previous diving experience.  The use of diving boards has also been introduced earlier, to give children experience of a diving board much earlier on, adding excitement and removing fear.  Emphasis has been placed on progression of skills through the awards in line with  developments in the sport of diving.
