Diving Lessons

The Snohomish Aquatic Center Diving Program is designed to teach the safe and proper way to use the springboard while introducing diving FUNdamentals. Everyone progresses at his/her own level and learns new skills along the way. Most importantly – everyone has a ton of fun! Diving lessons are offered in group or private/semi-private lessons.
All prospective divers must be comfortable in deep water and must be able to swim 25 yards by themselves. We focus on treating each diver as an individual. Group lessons will be capped for maximum activity and attention from the instructor.

Springboard Diving

FUNdamental Springboard Diving

Must be able to swim safely in deep water. Minimum age of 7.

The goal of this group is for divers to have fun and be safe while learning the basic fundamentals of the sport of diving. Divers will progress through an 8-level progression in accordance with the USA Diving Future Champions program. As divers progress through beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels, regular testing will be held to demonstrate proficiency in their dives and advance to the next level.  Based on this testing, feedback will be provided to divers and their parents/guardians to notify them of their progress, highlighting areas of strength, and provide suggestions on how they can improve.

Competitive Diving

Geared for students in grades 7-12

Competitive divers will train on a 1-meter springboard and work on developing and executing a 6-dive and 11-dive list for competitions.

Lesson Make-Ups

We understand that circumstances and plans can change and will grant you a full refund of your program fee if you cancel your student’s initial registration for a session prior to the first lesson day of that session. No refund will be provided in connection with any cancellation made after the first lesson of a session has begun.

Please understand that when you enroll your student in lessons, you are reserving a slot in a program that is in high demand and which could be filled by other students. As a result, your payment for reserving a slot in that program will be retained by the Snohomish Aquatic Center even if your student does not attend any lessons provided in the session.

All students enrolled in private lessons who choose to cancel or reschedule an appointment with four or more hours advance notice will now be subject to a rescheduling fee of $16/student per private lesson and $8/student per semi-private lesson. Frequent cancellations or rescheduling requests may result in losing your lesson spot, as these make it impossible for our instructors to maintain a consistent schedule.

Whether group or private lessons, it is your responsibility to make sure vacations, appointments, and other activities do not interfere with your attendance at any of the lessons in a session for which you have enrolled your student(s).
