How are dives organized?

1m springboard, 3m springboard, 3,5,7,10m Tower

Number of dive designates the dive and position

First Number =

Position off of board

1 = Front, 2 = Back, 3 = Reverse, 4 = Inward

5 = Twist, 6 = Arm-stand (tower only)

Athletes cannot Advance &

we will not let you Compete

Until Basics are VERY Good!

Each coach has specific talents

in specific areas.  Do not be surprised if a Coach gives a correction, or asks an Athlete to try something a little different, or asks to go back to a basic technique that is affecting a dive.

All divers, even the very best, sometimes regress, or alter their technique to compensate for difficult days, illness, injury, weather, resumption after a vacation, etc.

 

Thus, we often must go back to basics to re-enforce athlete technique.

 

Our coaches rotate (meaning your child will experience different coaches at practice), and we expect benefit from exposure to different explanations to the Athlete on how to correct different aspects of dives. This approach will strengthen an Athlete's overall diving, and provide a more solid groundwork for advancement.  

While it is perfectly normal to bond with a specific coach, our system provides a good relationship with all coaches, and will reduce perceptions of jealously, special treatment, politics, frustration, favoritism, and also help to keep a program fresh, rather than a repetitive, boring same old.

 

This is important.
