FREEDIVING

Freediving is known by many names:
Breath-hold diving, skin-diving, eleftheri katadisi, apnea, apnoe, freitauchen, ….

Apnea diving is not only a sport, it can be a source of pleasant feelings in a non-gravity environment and a wonderful interaction with nature. It is not important if you want to practice this sport in recreation or competition or if you do it in the sea or in a lake, but it is very important that you feel comfortable when you are in the water. Freediving also has some potential dangers but proper education will minimise the risks.

There are seven different disciplines, which are seperated for women and men:

Constant - deep diving with constant weight.

The athlete descends and ascends with his own strength.
A hold on the cable is only allowed one time to stop descending and to start ascending.

Constant without fins - deep diving without fins and constant weight

The athlete descends and ascends with his own strength without the use of fins.
A hold on the cable is only allowed one time to stop descending and to start ascending.

Free Immersion - deep diving without fins.

The athlete descends and ascends with his own strength without the use of propulsion equipment. Pulling on the cable is allowed.

Variable - deep diving with variable weight.

The athlete descends with the help of a "sled" or ballast weight (max. 35kg) and ascends with his own power, pulling on the cable is allowed.

No Limits - deep diving without limits.

The athlete descends with the help of a "sled" or ballast weight (no limit) and ascends with a method of his own choice - normally a balloon.

Static - static breath-hold.

The athlete holds his breath as long as possible, with his body either in the water or on the surface with his face submerged in the water.

Dynamic with fins - distance diving with fins.

The athlete dives, with his own strength, in a horizontal position under water, with the use of fins (stereo or mono), as far as possible.

Dynamic without fins - distance diving without fins.

The athlete dives, with his own strength, in a horizontal position under water, without the use of propulsion equipment, as far as possible.

In all disciplines the validity for the attempt is the physically integrity of the athlete during and after the dive. If the athlete loses control over his muscles (LMC) or loses consciousness (Black Out), the attempt is not valid. There are different rules for an individual record attempt and each discipline during a competition.

PARENTs & KIDS

Alphabet Book
Make a simple Alphabet Book from construction paper and pictures cut out of old magazines or catalogs.

Supplies needed:

  • Old magazines, catalogs, or newspapers with pictures
  • Glue stick or glue
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Crayons or a marker
  • Hole punch
  • Some string or yarn

Punch a few holes along the margins of 14 pieces of construction paper (or use regular lined paper with holes).

Tie the book together with string or yarn.

Put a personalized title on the cover and a few cut-out pictures (the child's photo or an "A" word, a "B" word, and a "C" word).

Write a large letter on each page of the book.




Go through the magazines and catalogs with the child, looking for simple pictures of easy words that start with different letters of the alphabet. Cut out the pictures. To help the child learn the alphabet, say the words out loud and have the child try to guess what letter each word starts with. Paste the picture on the page with that letter of the alphabet, and label the picture.
You can also have the child draw pictures on the pages.

This picture book can be a rainy day activity that you finish over a long period of time. You can use the alphabet book to help the child learn the alphabet long after the book is done.
