Due to COVID-19, our diving coaching programmes have been cancelled until further notice. If you have a direct debit with us, then this will have been frozen until we reopen. You do not need to do anything. Please check our website for reopening details for the Royal Commonwealth Pool and other Edinburgh Leisure venues. In the meantime, you can stay active at home with our custom-made drills, strength routines and much more, so you’re ready to make a splash when we reopen.


If you would like to support us through either membership or a one-off donation during this challenging time, please click here.
