Start Diving is funded by Swim England, to allow individuals to try out the sport of diving, before committing to lessons or a club.

At Bury Dragons, we are running sessions on Mondays during School Holidays, from 5.20 pm to 6 pm.  Each session will have 2 parts: 30 minutes dry land, learning about diving posture, shapes, and techniques, followed by 1 hour in the pool.

Places are limited, so please book early, especially if you can only make one or two of the dates.  Book by emailing

When you come to the session, you will need to wear light clothes that allow free movement for the first part of the session, and swimwear that does not restrict movement for the second part of the session.  Long swim shorts and bikinis are not suitable.

During school term time, we only run club sessions and lessons.  Look at the appropriate tab for more information
