Sub Aqua at Loughborough aims to get more students into the amazing sport that is Scuba Diving. We support experienced divers as well as novices so everyone is welcome.
Athletic Union Club
We are a BSAC affiliate Scuba Diving Club with many previous students helping out with instructing new members so our club has a very friendly and familiar atmosphere.
We have a number of full scuba sets which can be used by anyone in the club, so there is no need to buy your own gear before joining. We run various trips throughout the year, which are a mixture of shore and boat diving. In recent years, we have been to places such as Weymouth, Anglesey, St Abbs, Pembrokeshire and Plymouth and even Egypt to explore some of the best diving spots in the world.
We train every Wednesday night and start off with a lecture on diving and then head to the University Swimming Pool for our training session. We also train in open water at Stoney Cove which offers great training conditions and is great for your first dive.
We are a fairly laid-back club with no strict training regimes or entry requirements. We have a very approachable and friendly instructor team who are willing to help you learn the sport of diving, so join us today!
Coaching and volunteering
Within most sports there are a range of sports volunteering roles and opportunities for you to get involved and gain experience in. This ranges from coaching and officiating to events, marketing and media and sport science support.
