Diving lessons

The Harrogate Leisure and Wellness Centre (formerly The Hydro) is currently closed so that the council can carry out an extension and refurbishment of the existing facilities, including a new diving platform. Therefore, diving lessons are currently unavailable.

If you, or your child, has been inspired by the Olympic gold medal success of Ripon's Jack Laugher, you should consider diving.

Diving isn't just for the young or the elite. It can be done by everyone. Your strength or ability does not need to be a barrier.

With Brimhams Active, taking up diving is easy, and we can help you get started.

Don't worry, we don't expect anyone to dive off the highest board in the first session. Lessons start on the side of the pool with progress to the boards when confidence levels grow.

We offer diving lessons for children, adults and teens and divers with a disability.

Our prices

45 minute lesson £29.17 per month (monthly direct debit - spread the cost over 12 months)

Talent identification is a crucial recruitment tool for diving due to it being an early specialisation sport. As such, Swim England is calling upon anyone who may have an interest in the sport to get involved and see if they could become the next British Olympic champion.



Our DiveAbility sessions run in conjunction with Harrogate District Diving Club and offer the chance for children with additional needs in our community to access the physical and mental health benefits of diving. Diving is a sensory experience and whilst learning a variety of diving skills we also help our divers make personal breakthroughs and learn skills that can be transferred to other areas of their life.
