Information night

Hey everyone,

Thanks for coming to see us and sign up with us on Clubs Day last Tuesday.
We hope we got to answer at least some of your questions and are
considering learning to scuba dive and snorkel or simply continuing your
scuba diving career at UCC.

We hope you join us this Tuesday 24th September at 8 pm in Boole 2 for
our annual Open Night where you will learn all you need to know about the
club, training, costs, equipment and diving in Ireland. Afterwards we will
go to the UCC Old Bar for refreshments where you can get to know some of
our club members.

Two main questions come up every year at Clubs Day for us and hopefully
this will answer both of them and convince you to join UCC SAC.

– Yes, you don’t need to have dived before and we will train you and
provide you with qualifications to dive anywhere in the world.

-Yes, you can dive with us if you have dived before or have a qualification
from another diving organisation such as an Open Water certification from
PADI, SSI, etc.

We recommend you come along to Boole 2 @ 8pm next Tuesday night so you can
get a better idea of the club and hopefully we can clear up any lingering
questions you may have. In the meantime, email us at subaqua@uccclubs.ie,
