Here at POOLE DIVING we run an extensive Youth Diving Programme.
Youth Divers start from 8 Years of age, with Bubblemaker experiences, the PADI Seal Team and PADI Master Seal Team courses. Check out some of the Facebook posts for the Halloween and Christmas Night Diving Seal Sessions.
We run evenings for various Cub, Scout and Guide groups as well as working with some local schools.
Youth Divers progress once they reach 10 years of age; For the First timers they start with a PADI Discover Scuba experience, then for all on to the PADI Junior Open Water Course; specifically customised, by us, to include addition re-enforcement sessions on the theory, and a more relaxed approach to the Open Water Dives, giving the younger diver a more positive experience. The Open Water can be daunting for big people, so we take more time with the smaller ones!
We have specialist smaller Tanks, Buoyancy Control Devices and Youth Diver sized Wet Suits all included in the entry level courses, where needed, to make the Youth Diver more comfortable.
Our Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Divemasters, who deal with your Youth Diver, have DBS checks in place, and most importantly we are used to dealing with the Youth Divers.
It is what we do!
