Adapted SCUBA Demo Days
The purpose of the demo days are to introduce participants with a disability to underwater breathing and some of the basic skills necessary for SCUBA certification to dive anywhere in the world.
The participants spend one to two hours in the pool, one on one with Handicapped Scuba Association (HSA) certified dive instructors and certified volunteers, learning to use the equipment, swimming, and playing games underwater.
“I loved learning about all the gadgets in scuba and I had a blast. I can't wait to do it again,” said V. Sanjoy, one of the participants. “Scuba diving and the water give me a sense of freedom that I don't get when I am in my chair.”
“I felt honored to be part of the experience, and to see the enjoyment the participants got out of the activity. It truly made my heart happy,” added Angelicka Broznowicz, an occupational therapist.
The event is free and open to anyone with a disability.
The next Scuba Diving Demo Day is Sunday, February 19, 2017.
