Because humans use language to create meaning and understanding, many advanced technologies were unavailable to the masses before the invention of acronyms in 1952. Today's deal gives you access to self-contained underwater breathing acronyms: for $12, you get one Discover Scuba class at Just Add Water, a $30 value. Discover Scuba classes are currently scheduled on Saturdays at 2 p.m. at area pools, including Mayfield Village, Mentor Civic Center, and Notre Dame College. Participants will meet at Just Add Water's Willoughby location to be fitted for equipment before moving to the pool. Check the schedule for more information.
Though most who try something new only get their feet wet, a Discover Scuba class will have you totally immersed in one of Just Add Water's heated training pools. Practicing in the shallow waters of a pool allows students to get comfortable in the equipment without the added pressure of incomprehensible depths and run-ins with nervous spotted ratfish. During training, you'll spend a few minutes discussing the basics of scuba with an instructor before hitting the pool. Once in the water, students will get a lesson in submerged skills before being let loose to explore the underwater depths for abandoned pennies and bloated hamburgers. Students can exercise their moistened mobility with a game of underwater Frisbee or capture a few submerged snapshots for an impressive online profile picture that would make any pompous jellyfish jealous.
Would-be aquamen and aquawomen are asked to tote a swimsuit and towel to their course; instructors will outfit land dwellers with all the gear necessary to get their flippers flapping. Divers as young as 10 years of age can breathe underwater alongside friends and parents.
