Location: The One Leisure Centre St Ives Cambridgeshire
SISAC, (St Ives Sub Aqua Club), was asked by the One Leisure if we could put on some Half Term Try Dive Taster Sessions for children during the half term break.
We ran 3 short sessions on consecutive days with snorkelling and SCUBA equipment available for the children attending.
Each session was approximately 45 minutes in duration. The sessions were conducted in a safe manner splitting the groups. Half being trained in snorkelling and half using SCUBA sets.

After each 45 minute session the groups were then swapped over.
In total 27 attended the event, more than we anticipated, receiving a certificate at the end of the experience sessions.
Positive feedback was received from both parents and children. In all everyone had a great time and all enjoyed the event.
The instructors were Jon Chitty, Robin Norman, Paul Young and Bezz Williams, each
participants were awarded a certificate of their achievements from the One Leisure Centre.
SISAC is a Club operated under the auspices of BSAC, British Sub Aqua Club. All the members provide their time voluntary. This includes Instructors and general members who have learnt a skill and wish to share their time to encourage others.
