Diving Team

This is a program designed to teach diving skills for all ages. Some divers start with some experience, some learn diving just during the summer.

Beginning with the basics, each diver will learn proper diving techniques. As the diver improves, more difficult dives will be introduced. The team is divided into 3 levels: Junior, Intermediate, and Senior. Juniors are 11 years old or under and, in order to compete, must perform 3 dives. Intermediates are between the ages of 12 and 14 and must be able to perform 4 dives. At the senior level, participants are at least 15 years of age and must be able to perform 5 dives in order to compete. It is not crucial that the young athlete join the team already knowing this fixed number of dives. Our coaches are more than happy to help them reach their diving goals! Practices are held regularly and additional practices may be scheduled depending on pool availability. Diving meets are held once per week of which the day is to be determined by the NAA at the beginning of the season. Anyone is welcome to try the diving team. In order to compete in the semi finals, the NAA stipulates that the diver must have competed in at least 2 diving competitions throughout the summer. There may also be a restriction on the number of divers allowed to compete in the semi-finals. At the end of the summer, should it be the case where the number of divers exceeds the standard, the coaches will tabulate individual scores to determine who to send to the semi-finals. Overall, the diving team is a fun and productive way to learn how to dive and be given the chance to compete. Should you have any questions about the diving program, please feel free to ask a member of the coaching staff.
