Warwick University Sub-Aqua Club
Warwick University Sub-Aqua Club features SCUBA Diving and Underwater Hockey rolled up into one fun and friendly club. Here's some more information about diving, underwater hockey, and our club's social side!
Warwick Sub-Aqua is a SCUBA Diving Club with a difference: not only are we a University Club, but we are also a Branch of the British Sub Aqua Club.
What do we do?
Our main aim is getting more people into the water. We are passionate about diving, and want to share it. We run internationally recognised qualifications, with subsidised costs, so that everyone can gain experience in this amazing sport. We have all of our own dive kit, so here really is the easiest you can get involved!
Want to learn to dive?
We run try dives at the beginning of each academic year (weeks 1 and 2, term 1). Please see us at sports fair or email us for more information. If you enjoy the try dive, you can sign up for our ocean diver course. Please see our main website for more information!
Then come diving with us! We do a lot of UK sea diving, but warm-water trips run every year too. We also do more advanced BSAC training such as Sports Diver and Dive Leader for people who already have diving qualifications, with opportunities to also instruct with us! If you're not BSAC qualified (e.g. PADI) you can still come diving with us! Just join the club and you'll be invited on all our trips.
Looking for something new?
Underwater Hockey (also known as "octopush" or simply "push") is a fun and challenging sport that is played on the bottom of a pool, with players wearing mask, fins, and snorkels and holding their breath. Don't get intimidated though, because almost everyone is a beginner when they start, we will help teach you all the basics and get you comfortable.
When can I play?
Every Thursday from 7-8:30 and Sunday 6-7 we have our club sessions for underwater hockey. Come and try it out at our taster sessions at the beginning of terms 1 and 2. Even after taster sessions are done, anyone can come try out the sport at our Rock Up and Play sessions - which is free for all students and staff! We have all the equipment you'll need to get started, just meet us poolside in your swimwear! If you have already played before, we have a partnership with Coventry's team called the Midland Marlins which we play with on Monday's.
We also have an active social side of the club! After most push or diving trainings, we normally go to get some food together at the Varsity Pub and hang out outside of the pool for a while. Along with this, our exec plan other casual socials like pub nights and curry nights. We have sober socials with laser tag, bowling or board game nights as well as our yearly club christmas dinner! We also go to POP on the Univeristy Campus and always have some wacky dress up themes.
