Seal Team (for kids)
The PADI Seal Team program is an exciting underwater, activity-filled, introduction to the world of diving. The PADI Seal Team program gives young divers (age 8, 9 and 10) a chance to swim around underwater and experience adventure, discovery and thrills of being underwater through exciting Scuba "Aqua Missions." It also provides parents or guardians with a structured program that lets their children develop skills, learn about the aquatic realm and have a lot of good, clean fun.
What's an AquaMission? It's an underwater pool adventure where kids learn scuba activities. Have you ever wondered what it's like to dive with flashlights, take pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an Astronaut? If you have, this is your chance to explore these exciting adventures in a swimming pool.
To become official members of the PADI Seal Team, kids must complete the first five AquaMissions. These activities develop fundamental scuba skills and knowledge while preparing kids for further adventure. Children learn about diving by watching the PADI Seal Team video, through the PADI Seal Team AquaMission Activity Book and during pre-dive briefings with their PADI Instructor. Each AquaMission consists of a briefing, a skill session and a game or activity. Completing the pool dive and answering challenge questions in their PADI Seal Team AquaMission Logbooks earns young divers an AquaMission decal.
As part of their PADI Seal Team membership, PADI Seals have access to a special website designed for young divers. At www.padisealteam.com, young divers can learn more about the PADI Seal Team through character bios and they can read about the PADI Seal Team and Specialty AquaMissions like wreck, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more. Kids can check out links to www.padi.com and www.projectaware.org
