Any kid between 5-18 is welcome to join, whatever the skill level. You don’t need to know how to dive to be part of the team, no matter the age.
The team is led by Head Coach Kathy Kirk, M.D., who dove for her summer league pool and the Montgomery Dive Club on the J.O. Circuit before attending and diving for Princeton. Kathy loves to teach kids how to use the diving board safely and help them gain the kind of skills and self-confidence that make a difference in the pool and beyond.
The dive team is right for any child interested in the diving board, trampoline, gymnastics, making new friends or being part of a positive, supportive group. It is also a perfect complement to the swim team, and dive team practices are easy to combine with swim practice schedules.
A child can also join the team on a trial basis for a few days if you want to see if it’s the right fit.
