A lot happens at our weekly Club Nights! Every Thursday from 8pm, Club Scuba and Snorkelling members (and their families) are welcome to use the Leisure Centre’s 25m long pool for training, leisure or fitness activities. Snorkelling courses are available throughout the year for individuals or families looking to develop or up skill prior to a holiday and try-dives can be scheduled on request. Dry-side, BSAC theory lessons and fully approved BSAC training sessions can often be found in session, with members also using the time to plan their next dive trip.
The 2019 BSAC conference will take place on Saturday 26th October 2019 alongside the Birmingham Dive Show.
Last year’s conference attracted more than 800 of BSAC’s most committed and experienced volunteers along with the all-important next generation of enthusiastic members, from clubs across the UK and overseas.
Plans are underway for LUEC’s annual dive holiday to the Farne Islands in Northumbria.
