Who are we?
The Sheffield University Sub-Aqua Club was formed in November 1974 and became a branch of the British Sub-Aqua Club in 1975. We’re still running strong today thanks to support from our members, Sport Sheffield and the University Alumni Foundation. As of 2015 we are 80 members strong but we’re always looking for a new face to join our crowd. Whether you’re a “what’s a drysuit?” newbie or a “this one time in Lochaline…” weathered sea dog, we would love to meet you.
In May 2008 we were luck enough to receive a very generous grant from the University of Sheffield Alumni Foundation. Along with support from Sport Sheffield and our own fantastic fundraising efforts we were able to purchase some beautiful shiny new kit. Not only that, but it also allowed us to subsidise those members wishing to give back to SUSAC and subsidise them in their instructor courses. We were also able to put further funding into our own training program and enabled us to offer our own in-house training courses.
We offer training and diving to all students at the University, for all levels of skill and experience, and our range of equipment means we can provide most of the equipment you’ll need to go diving. So if you’ve never dived before and just want to give it a go or if you already have a qualification with BSAC or another agency, we can help you go diving!
