St Albans Sub Aqua Club (SASAC) is a water sports club in the city’s heart, providing facilities for scuba diving, snorkelling, underwater hockey and swimming,
Based at the Cottonmill Swimming Pool, the club was established over 50 years ago as a dive club and a branch of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC). It later became a branch of the British Octopush Association (BOA) and in recent years, after refurbishing the swimming pool, has become a popular venue for those wishing to swim in an outdoor pool.
We are a not-for-profit members only club, run by the members for the members. We are not open to the public but on occasions the premises and the pool is hired out to other local community groups.
We offer several ways to participate and enjoy the club:
We are an active branch of BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club) diving association; we have facilities for experienced divers and welcome newcomers. We are a friendly bunch with a wealth of knowledge. Dive trips are organised regularly throughout the year, mostly April – October.
We welcome divers from various other organisations, e.g. PADI – simply join us and come diving. Should you wish to progress your training, a crossover course to BSAC is easy.
