These induction sessions will be run fortnightly during our normal training times by a senior club member alternating between the Whangarei  & Kawakawa Pools. After filling in the online member and medical form, we will be in touch via email with more information and to confirm the training date and location you would like to attend. If these session times don’t suit and it it’s stopping you from joining please email us at northlandfreediving@gmail.com.
