The Go Freediving club is the place to progress your skills, make new friends and have fun all year round
Whether you are looking for a social environment to enjoy freediving or somewhere to practice and hone your freediving skills our popular, established club provides a inviting, friendly, safe and supportive place for you.
Pool Club Sessions
We have a growing number of active pool clubs, offering weekly confined water training sessions and led by world class freedivers and instructors. We encourage our members to develop their skills, support them through any competitive training they may wish to undertake and prepare them for any advancement of freediving levels they may wish to work towards.
With the opportunity to practice static, dynamic, duck diving and have fun, we ensure we provide a varied, scheduled training programme and can even provide tailored individual training plans (offered as part of the freediver’s Go Freediving club membership package).
You can come along to our pool club sessions twice as a guest without being a Go Freediving Club Member for £20 a session, however after that you are required to join the club and purchase annual membership. As a member the pool session price drops to around £10 session (subscriptions are paid quarterly and based on availability).
In order to train at our pool club training sessions you must be a minimum of: Aida**, SSI Level One or have taken a minimum of the RAID Try Freediving Course (we run these courses regularly, so if you do not have the minimum qualification you would need to undertake this course before joining, for safety reasons).
You must also agree to the codes of conduct for our club.
Our Pool Clubs are based in:
Bath (every Friday evening)
Poole (every Wednesday evening)
Steyning (brand new club opening soon!)

Club weekends at Vobster
In addition to our pool sessions, we provide club weekend days between April and October for our club members, in the glorious open water venue of Vobster Quay. Here we provide a buddy, offer a instructor (subject to availability) to sign off skills, and extend your social connections with our other clubs, so that you get the chance to meet our other club members and you can continue to progress your skills in an informal and relaxed environment.
If you wish to hire equipment then this costs £20 per day for all kit and £20 per day for a wetsuit.
If you have yet to finish your RAID freediver qualification, then you can use the club days to practice until you feel confident. When you are ready to have your skills signed off then you can join a course as a returning student for just £80 per day and spend the day with an instructor completing your certification requirements.
We often run social events for club members such as Summer Parties, Christmas meals and other freediving trips and meets throughout the year.
Club days are £10 for Go Freediving Club members and cost £40 per day for non-members (usual Vobster entry fees still apply). This includes exclusive use of hot showers and instructor where available.
Go Freediving first introduced pool club sessions in Bath in 2012 and its popular club has been running ever since. Its second club in Poole opened in 2016 and has been an extremely active club ever since, with club members regularly entering local, national and international competitions. We also have a third club opening in Steyning in 2021

Becoming a member, not only ensures you are protected by all liability insurance, it provides you with opportunities to take advance of exclusive deals, discounts and more. It also welcomes you into an amazing freediving community where you know you will have support and safe buddying at all times.
In return, we want to ensure we have commitment from our freedivers. This enables us to plan each season and continue to keep our club safe and thriving into the future.
Go Freediving has vast experience in setting up clubs and introducing practices both administratively and practically. We are always looking for fantastic areas to expand our club reach, so if you feel there is a need for a freediving club in your area, please let us know!
