DIVER VOLUNTEER PROGRAMMaintaining water quality and appearance of our pools is the top priority for the CMA Dive Team. Many of our pools are in direct sunlight which increases algae growth. Therefore, we need to enlist committed volunteer SCUBA divers to assist with our pool cleaning challenge.
Air tanks are provided and some equipment is available. Most volunteers bring their own dive gear.
All Divers must be CPR/AED Certified and show proof of certification.
