Fitness for Diving (Snorkel Sunday's)
Sept. 21th, 2014

The Hart House Underwater Club is pleased to offer a snorkeling and fitness for diving program as another way to enjoy the underwater environment. Led by a certified NAUI Scuba Diving Instructor, the program guides participants through exercises aimed at furthering one's snorkeling skills, apnea (breath hold diving), and fitness. The program is adapted to the needs of the participants from entry level (including participants from the underwater club's Learn to Scuba Dive course) to an intensive workout designed to strengthen in water skills and conditioning. All activities are using mask, fins, and snorkel. We usually round out the evening with a game of some sort including underwater hockey. The snorkeling program is held weekly on Sunday nights (8pm-9pm) at the Hart House Pool from mid September until the end of May. There is no cost for each session; however, membership in the underwater club is required. New this year, we ask participants to sign up for the course online, which only needs to be done once prior to your first session.

Since 1962 the HHUC has offered high quality Scuba diver training courses featuring twelve weeks of classroom and pool instruction leading to Scuba certification with the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI). The club supports a team of professionally qualified NAUI instructors (many of whom are faculty, staff and alumni of University of Toronto). Our instructors are also club members and volunteers, who teach for love of the sport, rather than for financial gain, and because they believe in keeping the sport of diving safe for all participants. The club provides many diving opportunities with an extensive summer dive schedule, various trips and a variety of Scuba related and social activities! Sign up for the fall course which will run on Tuesday evenings 7:00-11:00pm from from Sept. 16th until Dec. 2nd, 2014.
