Plymouth Diving is based at the state of the art Plymouth Life Centre.
In 1992 the diving training scheme was set-up by Andy Banks and whilst Andy is still involved the Squad Training scheme is run by Sally Freeman.
Following the Olympic bronze medal by Tom Daley in 2012, the Life Centre is full to brimming most nights with divers aged from 5 up to 25!!
There is a class for everyone, from Weeny Dive for 5-7 year olds, Dive 1-4 for 5-12 year olds, Teen Dive on Monday and Wednesday for 13-16 years followed by Adult dive for 16+. Bookings for these lessons are taken by Jess Taylor on 01752 608747.
So we’re are finally at the 2014 Brewin Dolphin Armada Cup and it’s a huge one!
With well over 210 competitors it looks to be an enormous weekend and we look forward to welcoming everyone from far and wide.
The event is once again being kindly sponsored by BREWIN DOLPHIN

From Friday 18th October we are running a second Pay as You Go session for all squad divers (Aquabats – Teens – Mighty Minis – Age Group – A Team – Development Squad).
This is in addition to the Saturday session that some divers cannot now make due to a change in their diving times.
The session will run from 5.30-7.30pm – dryland first – and will be run by Kathryn. Cost is £8. Ideal for preparing for competitions or just as an added extra for diving addicts!!!
The Saturday PAYG has been re-instated to the 1.30-3.30pm slot! The only ammendment is Saturday 12th October when Jess is away at the White Rose so the session is cancelled.
You can book PAYG sessions at reception or by emailing Sally.
