    Default Aquatic Centre - diving

    My kids are likely to young for this yet but I thought I would try and find out some info and I can find nothing. I am sure they have a dive team but I see nothing on their web site. Does anyone know some more info?

    Forest City Diving Club has their own website separate from CGAC where they rent the pool. DH says the youngest is about 9yo (11 and under) but it's been about 80 years since he was a diver, so don't trust him

    ETA back in the day the outdoor pools with boards would have summer diving teams, but that season would be about over now, if they still do that at all.

    they also run a learn to dive camp in the summer. I'm not sure what the ages for that are . Or when you have to sign up.

    My son started in their learn to dive programs at 5. They need to be able to swim comfortably in the deep water by themselves. There programs are generally once a week for an hour for the fall, winter or spring sessions. My DS7 is attending their summer camp this week (you have to be 6 to sign up for this). He is loving it (he is definitely the youngest person there). We have had a good experience but the club itself is not as organized as they could be (pool cancellations, etc. were not well communicated).
