Welcome to the NATO Scuba Diving Club Brunssum (NSDCB)!
The NATO Scuba Diving Club has been around at Brunssum for longer than any of us can remember and provides a friendly environment for staff and their dependants from Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum and other NATO bases nearby, including Air Base Geilenkirchen.
We are all club members to enjoy the exiting sport of Scuba Diving. Our club provides training from taking the first steps to the highest levels using the well established British Sub Aqua Club training programme. The initial training conveniently takes place in our indoor swimming pool, where we meet every Monday evening. There is a friendly atmosphere in the Club, and family groups are especially welcomed.
We also have members from just about every NATO nation, so you are likely to meet fellow countrymen in the pool!
In principle training is given in English, but our instructors can also assist in other languages. Normally diving is an expensive sport at the beginning but thanks to the wonderful facilities we find here, we can provide all of the equipment and training to get started, all for a very reasonable cost.
And once qualified, your diving qualifications will be recognised worldwide. There is more than just training in the Club and we organise diving trips to local sites, the Coast of Holland, and further afield to Egypt, France and so on. People consider summer season to be the only time a year to go out in the water, but why spend valuable days of your holidays learning to dive when you can relax in the warm pool during the winter months learning the principle safely and thoroughly and then be ready to go diving on your first day in the sun? You can also enjoy the atmosphere and ‘absorb' more about diving than you would on a holiday course.
Hopefully, you will enjoy it so much that you will wish to continue with the Club for the rest of your stay in a NATO organisation. This may have whetted your appetite enough for you to want to try it out, so why not come along to our Pool (side entrance) on Monday at 18.30. Bring your swimming kit with you and we should be able to give you a ‘try dive' in the pool. BUT, a word of warning, once you have tried it, you WILL be hooked, resistance is futile!!
If you are already a diver, from any diving organisation, why not call in? Come and dive with us or arrange to continue your training. Those interested should use the following link firstname.lastname@example.org
