Event Description

2017 Instructional Dive Camps

Our camp is a teaching camp. Using videos, lectures and discussion we show how elite and Olympic level divers use the Four Basic Keys as they perform in meets.

Divers will learn how to apply these same keys to their diving under the direction of their group coach through daily work on the diving boards and while learning dryland drills and perfecting entries.

Each diver has their dives video taped and critiqued by one of our coaches each session. We will try and focus on strengthen each divers new dives built over this time.
