Join the Dive Team

Join us for a fun-filled season in 2019. Safety and fun are foremost. Children of all ages are welcome. Participant registration for the dive team is managed through our eSoft Portal (check the Dive Team Registration box).

Dive Meet Volunteers Needed

Parents, please consider enjoying the excitement with your child by helping out. We need parents to help with several functions necessary to run the team and the meets. No previous diving experience is necessary. We have yet to find any person we could not train. Judges are particularly valuable and get the best seat in the house. Clinics for judges, table workers, and announcers will likely be early June and will teach all you need to know. 

Participant registration for the dive team is managed through our eSoft Portal.  You can register your child for dive team and can volunteer for one or more roles. Just check the Dive Team Registration Box. Volunteers are needed for each A & B meets, home and away. Table workers, judges and announcers are some of the volunteer positions required to run a meet. Check the Dive Calendar for dates and times for the June training clinics. Let us know if you can volunteer!
