Want to join a diving club/advertise your club?

Hi All,

A number of people have been advertising that their clubs are open to takeing on new members recently on boards which is great.

I thought it best to start a sticky to provide one stop shop for all clubs/potential recruits to come and have a look.

There is ofcourse a couple of requirements. This is for clubs not scuba shops/operators for free advertising. We are developing a community here and not providing a platform for free advertising. Breach of this will result in swift deltion of your post and possibly a ban. If in doubt feel free to PM a mod and check it out first.

For clubs wishing to post that they are recruiting new members you must provide the following:
Club name:
Location:
Association (CFT/PADI/Other):
Membership Fees:
Euquipment needed to join:

Failure to provide the above information may result in your post being deleted.

Enjoy!

Club name: NUIG/GMIT Sub-Aqua Club (www.galwaydiving.com)


Location:
We train in NUIG on Wednesday nights. Both for lectures and in the NUIG Kingfisher pool afterwards. 8pm-11pm every Wednesday.

Association (CFT/PADI/Other): CFT (or we can crossover PADI certs)

Membership Fees:
€2/year... so just under 4cent/week!
There will also be a CFT insurance cost of €50/year (student rate), everyone needs it.

Equipment needed to join:
Nothing initially. A group order for fins, booties, mask and snorkel are made in September (~€110). Then a group order for a two piece semi-dry, hood, gloves, weightbelt and weight will be made in December/January (~€330).
The expensive stuff (BCD/Tanks/Regs) are provided for use free by the club. Air fills are free and we just chip in for petrol costs when going on a trip.

You'll not find a cheaper way to learn to dive!

The training season is September -> March with a lecture or two and pool skills every week. We can only accept members in September so just posting this so students in NUIG or GMIT in September 2011 have a heads up to save for the equipment above!
