Covid-19 (temporary, we hope) Update Page ~ a/o 10jun20
We look forward to your joining us ~ See you in (and on) the Air!
The California Diving Academy Coaches and Administrative Team
Below, you will find detailed instructions ~ how to register and sign-up for our sessions
About Videoconferencing, best practices, and the platform we use ~ Zoom
Zoom ~ The videoconferencing service we will be using is www.Zoom.us. We strongly suggest that whatever platform you are going to use (mobile device, tablet, desktop computer, laptop, or smart TV), that IN ADVANCE you first download the Zoom app or get the software ~ so that you are ready to go for our next broadcast. The app and/or software are FREE; you DO NOT need an account. In addition, while in the conference, our system takes attendance and notes how long you stay focused on the platform.
NOTES and Best Practices ~ With our first broadcast a few people told us there was lag in the video/audio stream. To make sure your hardware and software are up to the task we suggest the following be done in advance:
Go to www.speedtest.net (there are other systems that do the same thing) to see how fast your Internet is; you may experience lag because of your Internet speed. Best practice suggests that you be on hardwired internet or Wi-Fi for the video, and that you call-in on a separate line to hear the audio; rather than using the in-app audio option.
We will supply call-in phone numbers when you receive the login details
If your Internet speed is “slower“ (<125mb/sec), you may be able to contact your Internet service provider and ask them to boost your speed without additional charge (as a benchmark for “at home“ Internet service, my Comcast runs at 400+ mb/sec). Alternately, you might POLITY beg/ask other people in your house that are on the Internet during our broadcast to stay off, or not load big videos, or not stream movies to help boost your speed and reduce lag.
Welcome to our LIVE Remote Training page.
The sessions will be run from 4:30-6pm (PST) Monday - Friday on Zoom.us
These LIVE sessions will be run following this general agenda for each day (4:30-6pm - PST):

i) Where the system requires you to select a grade from the drop-down menu please select 9th grade
ii) Then, there is a box marked “Other” where you can type in your actual school and current grade in school
b) If you are under 18 when registering, our system will require adult signatures
NOTE: There are a number of waivers, contact, profile, and medical information questions you/they must agree to and/or answer as part of this registration.
