The ASADA committee is made up of volunteers who take on these tasks as secondary duties (above their daily work load), often giving up much of their spare time to ensure the delivery of sub-aqua adventure training to serving soldiers, members of the Territorial Army, University Officer Training Corps and Army Cadets. Registered clubs pay a small annual contribution to register and assist with administrative costs. These costs are kept to a minimum and the committee frequently pay for and distribute BSAC training pamphlets and diving safety equipment to registered clubs.
