Try Dives


If you have always wanted to learn to dive or are simply curious about SCUBA, then a Try Dive with Barnsley BSAC Divers is the perfect introduction! In the safe confines of the Barnsley Metrodome 4 metre diving pool, a BSAC Instructor will introduce you to the basic skills and equipment needed to experience the thrill of breathing underwater for the very first time!

What happens?

Meet us in the Board Room (off the bowling alley) at 7:30pm on the date you’ve agreed with us. We’ll introduce you to your Dive Instructor for the evening who will tell you what will happen. You can also chat to the rest of us about anything you like.

  • At 8:15 pm you’ll get changed and meet your Instructor near the Dive Pool.
  • Your Instructor will explain the kit you’ll be using and help make sure you put it on correctly.
  • Once kitted up, it’s into the pool and have a great time until 9:30pm.

We hope during the evening you will have had enough opportunity to talk about things and decide if you want to come back to join up or carry on checking out whether diving is for you.

Please note – Before your Try Dive you will be asked to read and complete a medical form – you can save time by downloading and completing the Try Dive medical and responsibility declaration in advance of your session.

If Tuesdays are not convenient for you, then our sister clubs Dearne Valley Divers and Doncaster Sub Aqua Club can offer try dives on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Please contact them for more details.

What does it cost?

£20 which includes all your kit hire (mask, fins and scuba equipment).

What kit do I need?

Your normal swimming gear plus a T-shirt – this helps make wearing the dive gear more comfortable for most people.

Is there an age limit?

We have an minimum age limit of 12 – otherwise our equipment is too big for you.

Please note – all our Instructors have been DBS-checked.

Can I bring a friend?

Of course you can! We can run several Try Dives on the same night. Each of you will have your own dedicated instructor!

If you have friends or family who want to come but don’t want to do a Try Dive they can come down to the dive pool to watch. There is no need for them to be in swimwear.
