Project Description

We are Boston’s premier diving education center for Scuba Ranger Classes and other kids scuba lessons in Massachusetts and New England!

About The Course:

Overview

The Scuba Rangers development program introduces children 7-12 to most of the same scuba skills that open water divers learn, in a no pressure environment. Skills are introduced and children are encouraged to try them, but are never forced if they’re uncomfortable trying or practicing a skill. We also make sure to leave plenty of time for kids to play and have fun underwater. After they’ve completed the five development sessions, Scuba Rangers are eligible to participate in specialty sessions to learn more scuba skills, earn further Rangers certifications, and have even more fun!

Scuba Rangers classes are safe, taught only by instructors specifically trained in teaching scuba to children, and will introduce your child to the wonders of scuba in a gentle, multi-faceted manner. It’s a great pre-cursor to an open water certification, or just for fun! While they won’t be able to get into the ocean until they are old enough to take the Junior Open Water Course, the Scuba Rangers Course can start to develop a passion that could turn into a lifelong hobby, or even more!

Please Contact East Coast Divers 617-277-2216 or divekids@ecdivers.com with any questions.

Before Class

Note – All the paperwork you’ll need along with a “what to do before class” checklist is located in the corresponding tab.

Before you can start class you’ll need to fill out some paperwork. Most of this can be done ahead of time but some of it will have to be done in the shop. The only piece that MUST be completed at the shop is a folder provided by SSI because we keep it in-shop for our records. You can do this before class – just remember to show up 30 minutes early if you haven’t filled it out yet!

“What to do before class” checklist

There are a couple of forms that can be done ahead of time, most importantly is the medical release form. Go through the form now and check to see if you need to answer “YES” to any of the questions. If so no big deal – you’ll just need to get a doctors’ sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors’ note is in the same file as the medical – Just scroll down to the next page. Remember “IF” you answer “YES” to anything in the medical it is NECESSARY to get a doctors’ note BEFORE getting in the pool.
