Molchanovs Junior Freediving Courses

Junior Freediving Courses

We invite you and your family to discover the amazing world of freediving with us! What could be better than sharing your passion with your loved ones?

We support a family-oriented approach to training! That’s why we offer freediving courses for both adults and children. You can learn freediving side by side, sharing common goals, emotions, and achievements. Strengthen your family bonds in an atmosphere of trust, understanding, and support!

Freediving for kids is suitable for everyone: from young diving enthusiasts to those who are afraid of water. We carefully teach children diving and underwater swimming techniques, help them overcome their fears, and improve their physical and mental health. We use an individual approach for each child, depending on their age, physical condition, and swimming skills.

In the course, children dive and hold their breath in complete comfort, with joy, and under the attentive supervision of an instructor. The program is available for participants aged 4 to 15 years.

Children are divided into three age groups: 4–7 years, 8–11 years, and 12–15 years. The program for each group is adapted to the age and skill levels of the participants.

Junior Freediving

Starting at age 4, children learn the basics of swimming with elements of freediving and build their confidence in the water. As they grow older and progress through following courses, they delve deeper into techniques and skills to eventually become independent freedivers.

Throughout the training, children not only develop and acquire valuable skills, but also improve their health, feel more comfortable and safe in the water, have fun, and cultivate a healthy relationship with the ocean and its inhabitants.

For children aged 4-7, we offer pool sessions (LAP 1, LAP 2, LAP 3 courses) with the opportunity to swim in the ocean on our house reef. Children aged 8 and up can participate in Wave courses (1, 2, 3), which include both pool and open water sessions. Each course lasts 3-4 days.

For all age groups, we also offer a one-day Discovery Freediving course, which allows children to try freediving and see how much they enjoy this activity.
