For children aged 8 to 12 years old
Our next course is Monday 11th – Friday 15th January 2016
SSI’s Scuba Rangers program is one of the world’s best-developed scuba and snorkelling programs for children and Sub Aquatics are the ONLY dive school in Sydney to teach the program. Diving school designed for children aged 8 to 12, Scuba Rangers classes are safe, taught only by instructors specifically trained in the Rangers program, and will introduce your child to the wonders of the water in a gentle, multi-faceted manner.
The SCUBA RANGERS Philosophy
Proper Knowledge: Rangers must learn the rules of responsible diving.
Proper Skills: Rangers must learn and practice basic scuba skills.
Proper Equipment: Rangers must learn to use basic scuba equipment, and should own snorkeling equipment, and properly maintain and care for all equipment.
Proper Experience: Rangers should maintain diving proficiency, dive within their limits, and continue to learn more about scuba and water exploration.
Proper Responsibility: Rangers honour their responsibility to their family, friends and community and themselves, always going above and beyond what is needed because Scuba Rangers are THE BEST!
Training is broken out in 5 different levels. The kids are taught the skills and knowledge they need to become safe and successful divers in a fun yet controlled environment.
Get your children excited about moving up the Scuba Ranger ladder!
Step 1: Red Ranger – Kids demonstrate their swimming skills and learn how to snorkel with a mask, a snorkel and fins. How to help other children is also emphasized. And most importantly, so is having fun!
Step 2: White Ranger – Would be divers are introduced to diving equipment. What are these things for and how do we use them? Rangers then go into the pool with equipment for the first time.
Step 3: Blue Ranger – Rangers learn new diving exercises in the pool such as how to float in the water.
Step 4: Silver Ranger – Children play games underwater while wearing diving equipment to increase their comfort and practice the diving techniques they’ve learned so far.
Step 5: Demo Ranger – Your proud children are able to “teach” diving to parents, siblings, and friends by doing demonstrations of the skills they’ve learned.
After completing the Demo Ranger level, students can become Scuba Ranger Club members, and receive an official certificate and membership card.
Kids become part of a network of Scuba Rangers, who can then swim together, talk about scuba, and go on field trips to aquariums or movies about ocean life. Scuba Rangers may then also complete any of the Scuba Rangers Specialties:
Scuba Rangers is FUN
