JOIN OUR DIVE TEAM
The JSIS Dive Team is a unique opportunity for students 12 and older who are interested in marine biology, marine archeology, the ocean, and the technology required for discovery. Our goal is to engage kids through science education, scuba training, and hands-on experiences. This program is open to divers, non-divers, and those that want to become divers. We involve students in marine science research projects and provide real world opportunities for them to contribute to the discovery of solutions or history to conservation or something of historic value.
CLINICS, CLASSES, & WORKSHOPS
Each month, we offer scuba clinics, scientific diving classes, and marine science workshops. Divers will develop their diving and science skills leading to research field trips to reefs in Florida. We also plan local community projects, including environmental cleanup events, ocean engineering challenges, and other projects our members are interested in leading.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Any student at least 12 years old can join. Whether or not you are certified does not matter. If you cannot swim, we will teach you. If you want to stay on shore or in the boat, we still want you to join us. In addition to scuba diving, we have drones, remote operated submersibles and remote camera equipment. We have something for everyone.
WHEN DO WE MEET?
We have workshops, events, or scuba clinics every month. Dates and times will vary depending on the pool and instructor schedule. We have semi-annual meetings with all members to discuss upcoming goals, projects, and trips.
If you or your child wants to join our team, fill out the member registration form stating an interest in marine science and submit the $30 annual member fee. Send a request for more information. We’ll answer your questions, provide more information, or point you to the nearest chapter.
