LEARN TO DIVE

For divers who have no diving experience and who want to learn to dive.

The Learn-to-Dive Lesson program is for divers who are new to diving. MDA coaches use proven, positive teaching techniques, including basic skill progressions that promote body balance, spatial awareness and body alignment. Divers will work on learning front approach, back press, head-first entries, correction of body form, and progressions to new dives. The training emphasizes on diving safety, while assisting divers to be prepared for the mental demands of diving. Divers will work primarily on 1-meter springboard, though they will be introduced to dryland equipment, trampoline, 3-meter, and platform as well.

Divers will improve their physical conditioning, mental toughness, and self-esteem through diving. Our low ratio of coaches to divers ensures optimal attention and progress.

The High School Enrichment program will focus on 1-meter and 3-meter springboard training plus dryland and conditioning training. The goal of this program is to assist divers to be ready for the state championship meet and also prepare them for upcoming college diving recruiting.
