Beginner Freediving Course in Sliema, Malta
The AIDA 2 Pool Freediving course is meant for those who have no particular interest in depth but who want to gain a solid theoretical knowledge of the sport, and practice pool disciplines (dynamic and static apnea).
The course consists of:
- two theory sessions
- one breathing and relaxation session
- two confined water sessions (usually in the swimming pool)
- one exam to take at the end
The student is asked to go through the AIDA educational material beforehand (the material will be sent upon booking), in order to be able to focus on practice during the course. On the day of the course, the main points will be reviewed and all questions answered.
Static apnea is a freediving discipline in which the diver holds his/her breath for as long as possible with the nose and mouth immersed while floating on the surface of the water. Dynamic apnea (with or without fins) consists of swimming underwater.
Included in the listed price
Educational material (sent before the course), freediving equipment, AIDA certification (if the requirements are met), and insurance. The requirements to be certified are 2min in static apnea and 40m in dynamic apnea.
This course will be a private, one on one course. No other student will be present. If you do wish to bring along one or two friends, a discount of € 25 will be given to any additional student. To maintain optimal conditions, three students at the most will be accepted.
Please note that AIDA International's standards strictly require students fo fill in the AIDA medical statement and the AIDA liability release before any course. They will be given to you in paper form at the beginning of the course.
