April 3, 2013 (FPRC) -- Athens, GA Dolphin Dive Club, a group of local certified scuba divers dedicated to continued education and community service, will introduce the sport of scuba diving to middle school aged children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens. The private event, taking place on April 14, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at the YWCO pool, will present an overview of the sport and allow the children to experience the sensation of breathing underwater while suited up in full scuba gear.
Scuba diving is a fun, equipment-intensive sport for participants with a sense of adventure and attention to detail. Through this interactive event, Dive Club members will have the chance to share their enthusiasm for scuba diving while contributing to the Boys & Girls Clubs' mission: To inspire and enable all young people, especially those that need it most, to realize their full potential as responsible, caring and productive citizens.
The Dolphin Dive Club reached out to the Boys & Girls Clubs because it believes scuba diving will have a positive impact on the kids. Both Clubs share the same expectations and goals for young people, including positive self-image, education, employment, community involvement, health and well-being, and moral compass. Dive Club members will demonstrate how scuba diving achieves those goals. The kids will learn the underwater world offers education and adventure, as well as entire categories of career opportunities.
