There are several local meets which your diver will be encouraged to attend. You can see the schedule of meets on the website calendar. Please review the website and put these meets in your calendar ahead of time. If you notice an out of town meet coming up, ask your coach if your child is expected to attend. You may need to register for the meet at


Parents will help run the meets which our team sponsors – generally one in the fall and one in the spring. Please plan on being available to help out at these meets. Tuition is due even if you leave for the summer, we still need to pay the coaches if you're out of town.
There will be one or two fund raisers a year, if necessary, in order to keep tuition costs down. We are a not for profit organization. (i.e. tax deductible).


  • Divers are expected to dive on both 1 and 3 meter boards.
  • Divers will be expected to be at each practice on time. If you need to miss a practice please send an email to, or contact your coach..
  • Divers on the top 3 “competitive” teams are required to perform to a standard as set forth by a “standards” contract signed by both athlete and Coach.
