- Skill Team - Pool sessionJuanita Aquatics Center, Kirkland, WA
Session Agenda: Introductions, Swimming, Gear Management
(note: you must sign up, and pay, for "Nights at the Pool - Dec 11th", as part of this session.)
What is skill team? Skill team is a group of divers wanting to practice their scuba skills with other divers. Skill team will meet regularly, at the pool, or local open water locations. The team’s primary goal is to improve scuba skills and confidence, together as a group, in a low stress casual environment. The team will work on things like clearing, buoyancy, emergencies, entries/exits, equipment, stamina, bubble rings, navigation, with a little socializing before or after.
How do you join? Attend a skill team session.
Who can join? Divers of any certification level and experience are welcome to join. Please show your cert card the first time you participate. For under 18, guardian must be on-site.
What does a session look like? After introductions, the session's activities will be discussed. Then the team will break into small groups, working together to complete the activities.
Will we learn new skills? No. Skill team is not a training group. Participants will only work on skills they already learned in their respective certification class(es). If you're interested in learning a new skill, reach out to your instructor. Then come back to skill team, to practice what you learned.
What does it cost? Joining skill team doesn't cost anything. After attending a couple skill team sessions, though, we ask you to donate some extra $'s to the Moss Bay Diving Club.
Disclaimer: All participants are responsible for managing their own safety, and following their training, regardless of what skills others are working on, or comments other participants make. While most exercises will be skills learned during open water certification class, if any exercise progresses past your training, it is your responsibility to exclude yourself from that exercise.
- Discover Dive: Dusty, Rusty or Crusty Tune Up DiveAlki Cove 2, Seattle, WA
This is the perfect opportunity for divers who are new to the sport and want to gain more experience or rusty divers who may have taken some time off and are looking to get back into the sport. Success of this event is directly related to your RSVP so please make sure to set your attendance as going so others will want to join in the fun. These are freestyle events and so good communication with others going on what you expect or need is encouraged. You should communicate via messages on the event page so everyone knows what's going on.
Again: This is a Freestyle event which means there is no Host or Leader. All divers are expected to have good communication skills and freely communicate with others about their desires and limitations. Create sound dive plans, Do effective predive buddy orientations and keep up on both their air supply and their buddies air supply to insure a safe overall dive. Buddy teams should consist of two but no more than 3 divers and all divers should know who and what they are responsible for before entering the water.
We are going to assume this to be a one tank dive but additional dives are fine as long as you communicate that with the others going.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to practice your skills no matter what your level is.
