The Butler YMCA, in conjunction with Scott’s Scuba Service, is teaming up to conduct a Scuba Diving Certification Course here at the YMCA. The course is divided into three learning aspects; learning the theory of diving in the classroom and skill development in the pool at the YMCA. The final aspect takes place at Scott’s Scuba private diving lake in the Slippery Rock area. This is where you will make the transition from what you learned at the YMCA into a local diving environment. The course takes place over five sessions from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The program is 100% all inclusive in the pricing with absolutely nothing to purchase. The course is open for ages 10 years and older. All registration and questions should be directed to Scott’s Scuba Service in Freeport, PA.
For ages 10 and older. A parent must take the class with any child ages 10 or 11.
