We are a small friendly diving club offering scuba diver training based on the BSAC diver training programme, club diving trips and social activities. We've been around for over 65 years, and have a range of friendly members with different diving experiences.
On most Wednesday evenings, we meet at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre for our pool session from 20:30 - 21:45. Where we are very fortunte to have weekly access to the diving pit which is 6 metres deep.
After our pool session, we usually meet up in the Old Queens Head pub to share diving stories and organise trips.
But if you really want to get to know the club, read our members stories or better still visit us at a club night.
We welcome people new to diving and those already qualified with BSAC, PADI, CMAS, SSI etc. Please make contact and we will be in touch about how to join us!
Already a Qualified Diver?
If you have completed your diver training with BSAC, PADI or another organisation we welcome you to join Sheffield Scuba 36. Our diving officer will review your qualifications and advise you about where you will fit in the club and discuss if you would like any further training. Come down to Ponds Forge on a Wednesday evening at 20:30 and have a chat, or to the Old Queens Head from about 22:00, or please contact us via the form on the home page, send us a Facebook message or an email to arrange a try dive.
Training with the club
New members will receive all of the relevant training required to make them a safe scuba diver. We have BSAC qualified instructors who can provide training to Ocean Diver, Sports Diver, Dive Leader and Advanced Diver.
Initial training is to Ocean Diver for new recruits, whereas if you join as a pre-qualified diver, then you would start at a level equivalent to your grade.
We have club equipment that we can rent to you for the duration of your course to use at the pool and in open water.
Each course has a number of theory sessions which usually run before the pool session on a Wednesday from 7pm in Sheffield centre, however we can make alternative arrangements if needed.
