Our Role

Club diving is at the heart of BSAC. Through your local BSAC club, you can enjoy the full range of club and training activities - including specialist skill development courses - as well as weekend dive trips, diving holidays and social activities.

These activities take quite a bit of effort to plan, organise and deliver. The clubs Committee members are elected annually and all volunteer their own time to make sure that club diving activities actually happen. Without their efforts, we would not be a club!
