Aspects of our teaching require a “hands on” technique. This type of physical contact between coaches and divers will only be used in full view of the balcony and the lessons participants and will only be used for the following reasons:
Where it is essential to support the diver during the early stages of learning a skill for safety reason
To develop the skill & technique (e.g. placing the diver in the correct position/posture)
To prevent an injury (e.g. pushing them away from the poolside if, during the process of the dive the coach considers them to be too close to the poolside)
To treat an injury (only relates to staff who are first aid qualified)
Please let us know on joining the diving scheme, if you are uncomfortable with any aspect of this teaching/coaching technique.
Photography and Video
Use of video, zoom, general photography and mobile phone cameras are prohibited to members of the public unless specific permission is given by the Pool Manager prior to an event or lesson. We also request that NO flash photography takes places during any of the lessons or training sessions.
The Diving Development Scheme may use cameras and video recording equipment to help coaches analyse techniques and to help promote the club. These photographs may on occasion be used as marketing material.
DuDive withholds the right to photograph and publish images as they see fit of all people enrolled in the lesson program. Any person wishing to refuse this permission must do so in writing to Tom@DuDive.com
To ensure smooth and effective running of the lessons, parents/guardians are expected to not communicate with their child unless in an emergency as this can disrupt the class for all participants.
Parents/guardians are not to be on poolside during lesson times unless pre-arranged and agreed by the teaching/coaching team and pool management prior to the lesson.

Divers will be polite and courteous to each other and all members of centre in and around the centre.
Divers are expected to walk on and around the poolside and on the steps up to the diving boards, as they become very slippery when wet.
Divers must not jump off the diving until the coach has told them to do so.

As the diver enters the water they are to exit the pool by swimming directly back underneath the diving board.
