We want your new club to thrive. So, new clubs get some extra special treatment to get them started on the road to success.
When you set up a new club you will receive a support pack with information and resources to get your club started. You will also be contacted by BSAC HQ and your Regional Coach to see how they can help.
Club support generally falls into the following areas but we’re here to help however we can, so please do just get in touch. For support or advice on anything at all please email BSAC or call 0151 350 6201.
Instructors in clubs can teach the Diver Training Programme and Skill Development Courses (SDCs). BSAC’s Regional teams are available to assist you with a range of courses and events to support clubs’ diver training and developing interests.
Divers and instructors from other agencies
It's easy for PADI qualified (or other agency divers) divers to dive and train with BSAC. Members with a recognised diving qualification do not have to do any cross-over or further training (unless they want to). There is a straightforward induction process which recognises their qualification and accreditation.

Safety and going diving
BSAC is the national governing body for scuba diving and snorkelling in the UK and takes the safety of all divers very seriously. There is a wealth of safety information online, but should you require any specific advice or guidance please contact BSAC.
