Developmental

 

This group is for athletes who wish to compete at the Junior Olympic level or maybe even one day in college!

 

To be invited to this group athletes must have at minimum of front dive tuck, Inward dive tuck, Back Dive Tuck, and Reverse dive Tuck on 1m and 3m.

 

 The main focus of this group will be to continue building the skills necessary to compete on 1m, 3m and platform and skill mastery at a higher level.  The coaching staff will also be monitoring the athletes attitude, coach ability, and work ethic to help determine readiness before moving up to the Junior Olympic level.

 

The time commitment and expectations become more significant for those who choose to participate at this level of the team. This Group is a yearlong commitment.  Athletes must attend the minimum amount of weekly practices based on their FINA Age.

 

FINA Age Group

11&U               2 Days                         $260

12-13               3 Days                         $330

 Divers and parents will be required to compete at AAU and USA National Qualifying Meets which they are eligible and are required to attend all championship meets in which the team is attending. Athletes will also be asked to attend travel meets and team training trips on the schedule.

 

Athletes are required to be working toward/ maintaining an age appropriate competitive list on 1m and 3m springboards.  Athletes who are not meeting the standards of competitive readiness, attitude, coach ability, and work ethic will be moved to a more appropriate group.
