The SSI Pool Freediving program provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely participate in the recreational sport of freediving (breath-hold diving) in a pool/confined water environment.


Online Learning: The first step in your freediving journey will start with an online course through the MySSI App. This course will provide you with the information you need to join us in the classroom and the pool.

Classroom Lecture: Before getting into the water, we will have a classroom session to discuss the things you learned online, examine some equipment used for freediving, and discuss other opportunities available to you after certification. At the conclusion of this, we will take a short exam and review together. 

Breathing/Stretching Session: The first practical exercise we will be doing is a dry land breathing session. This helps us understand relaxation, the final breath, the breath-hold, and the recovery breath. We also examine how our heart rate and blood oxygen levels respond to the breath-hold. 
Pool Sessions: Finally, we hit the water! We become familiar with our equipment, finning with our awesome fins, the breath-hold, and recovery. The first pool session is all about the warm and fuzzy of freediving. The second pool session is taking the knowledge you have learned and putting it together in a practical application in what we call, Dynamic Dives, which are length-wise breath-hold dives in the pool.
