DSAC meet for pool training every Thursday night 8-10pm at Medlock Leisure Centre, followed by drinks at Aldwinians Rugby club. The first Thursday of every month is Family Swim Night and allows all non-diving members and families to come and have a swim at the pool.

The club has a great social life with events organised throughout the year ranging from quiz nights to BBQs in the summer. Recent events include a meal at a greek restaurant, at Christmas there was a weekend away in North Wales with a party and disco and lots more events are planned for the coming months

Diving

It’s our passion for diving that brings the club together and while training sessions and progression dives at quarries like Capernwray and Stoney Cove are regulars on the calendar its getting out into the ocean and exploring new dive sites that we really enjoy.
