Competitive

Divers who show potential (through ability, attitude, and work ethic) may be invited to join our competitive program. Competitive divers will be working on a dive list to meet competition requirements in order to compete throughout the season. Attendance at competitions is mandatory

The focus of the Competitive Team is to develop personal excellence, work ethic and self-esteem. Our goal is to help each diver attain his or her level of success whether it is at the Regional, Provincial, National or International Level.
