Scuba Rangers!

Are you looking for new ways to keep your children engaged, active and healthy?

Would you like them to develop key skills, such as leadership, teamwork and cultural awareness at the same time?

Welcome to our pool-based scuba diving programmes, specifically designed for those aged between 8 – 12 years!​ Scuba Rangers is a fantastic way to combine education, fun, friendship and a lifetime of adventure! ​

Scuba diving for kids in Leicester

The programme has been designed specifically to welcome children into the diving community and keep them a part of it for the rest of their lives, while learning valuable life skills. The programme teaches children the knowledge and tools required to be a safe diver, while encouraging them to have as much fun as possible. Scuba Rangers is purely pool-based but offers all of the training and education that a regular Open Water Diver receives, customised for a younger child’s level of understanding.

The programme is designed to keep children active, while teaching them to reach their goals through hard work, commitment, and fun. Key life skills such as self confidence, responsibility, leadership, discipline and self esteem are all developed through the programme.

The best bit is that’s it’s not just a one-off course. After successful completion of the Demo Ranger level, the Scuba Ranger has the opportunity to enrol in ongoing pool sessions and continue their learning. They are encouraged to attend club meetings, where they can practice their skills in the pool, be involved in activities and socialise with other Scuba Rangers!

Once the child reaches the age of 10, they have the opportunity to immediately progress to the Junior Open Water Diver programme, remain an active member of the Scuba Rangers programme, or both. Having learned all of the skills already, the transition to Junior Open Water Diver is seamless and typically makes them a truly exceptional diver for their age!

Participation offers children the opportunity to learn more about the world around them, gain diving proficiency, be active in the community, meet new and interesting people, and do things they never imagined possible.
SSI are expected to make further enhancements to this programme over the coming months.
