There are no uniform standards, there are recommendations, and there is an objective assessment of the child’s capabilities, which the instructor must give. In some cases, parents are advised to wait six months to a year, and then come again. It can be traumatic for parents to hear that their child, “the most-most,” is not yet ready for diving, although his peers are already engaged, but in case of risk or danger to health, the instructor should take a tough stance.
For young divers there are certain restrictions on depth in accordance with age. For children 8-10 years old, the maximum allowable depth is 2 meters, 10-12 years old – 5 meters, 12-14 years old – 10 meters.

Ice diving (also referred to as ice diving from the English. “Ice” – ice) is not necessary or, more precisely, not only winter diving. Baikal is covered with a thick crust of ice only in January, and even then not completely. (For example, at the source of the Angara, the water never freezes.)
