Chorley British Sub-Aqua Club
|We run BSAC snorkel courses
Snorkel courses are great fun, easy to learn and ideal for those who are
not able to scuba dive, keen to
start sub aqua activities or just plan to snorkel on holiday, but wish
to achieve a little more confidence in the water first.
BSACís snorkelling courses are open to children and
adults alike. There are two courses available Ė
Dolphin Snorkeller (8 years or above)
This course is aimed at younger children and introduces
snorkelling via a series of seven progressive fun in water sessions.
Snorkel Diver course (12 years or above)
There are classroom sessions to teach the theoretical
knowledge of snorkelling, coupled with practical lessons in the pool
or in sheltered water. The practical training is identical to the
content of Dolphin Snorkeller. The training is structured and
progressive, building skills and confidence.
You can then progress to Snorkel Dive Manager or Snorkel
Instructor if desired.
|The courses prove popular with families as it a great
way to get the whole family involved in water activities. It is also a great
introduction for those not
quite old enough to start sub-aqua activities. We also provide all
snorkel equipment for the course too!
How old must I be to start?
The minimum age is 6 years, the maximum is unlimited
...... but you must be able to swim and pass our initial competency test.

Message from one of our recent courses:
Just to say a big thank you to all at Chorley BSAC for
all your support and excellent tuition on the snorkel course. We all
enjoyed it and are looking forward to using our skills in Egypt this
summer. We found the family atmosphere at the club very welcoming
especially as our ages ranged from 8 to 43. Best wishes Paul, Kate, Anneke,
Katie and Karen.
For more comprehensive information, why not pop down and see us
at Leyland Leisure Centre Pool on Wednesday evenings between 9pm and 10pm
