Diving for people with disabilities

IDDA (International Disabled Divers Association) trained Diving Instructors

A few words!

Especially for people with disabilities, sports diving holds an immense potential for positive influences – both physiologically and psychologically.

  • retainment and development of individual movement functions/motorskills.
  • muscle tissue
  • co-ordination
  • breathing
  • increase┬áin self-convidence
  • increasing your own abiities
  • social contacts (diving is a partnersport)

Wheelchair users can experience a real, unexpected freedom of movement in a new dimension. Diving as a sport also proves to be an underestimated therapy for rehabilitation – up to a measure that conventional kinesiatrics cannot reach.

In summary, we can conclude:
For this group of people – diving is a real Sport of Integration!
Foreword: We do offer an extensive programme for interested people. Our instructors are qualified under IDDA (International Disabled Divers Assiciation ) and IAHD (International Association of Divers with Disablities) guidlines/standards. You will be in good hands!

Every course will be held on a 1 to 1 basis so the instructor can adapt to the needs of the individual.

At this point we are very pleased to introduce a young diving organisation which has dedicated their knowledge and teaching abilities to divers with disabilities.
