Classes & Teams
CDA offers 1-day and 2-day day-camps that will help you gain skills and confidence in beginning or extending your diving knowledge and experience. Whether you want to master forms and refine techniques, learn to rip entries, add new dive(s), are taking that next step in becoming a competitive diver; or are simply interested in diving – this session promises to be a fun and rewarding experience.
The California Diving Academy will help you set and achieve your goals. Our camps are designed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced divers of all ages who are interested in developing or improving their skills. Participants are expected to be comfortable and safe swimming on their own in the deep end of the pool. No previous diving experience is required and groups will be configured by skill-level. Enrollment will be limited to ensure that individuals receive special attention and have the opportunity to maximize their participation.
