Participants must be at least 10 years old and have strong swimming skills.

Classes will take place rain or shine. If there is thunder or lightening classes may be delayed or postponed.
In this class divers will learn the basic stretches to adequately prepare them to engage diving maneuvers. Participants that have limited diving experience will be led through a series of lessons to improve their skills.
Each participant will acquire:
- Proper body mechanics-tie pointing, hand, head, arm coordination for entry. The importance of the core with hips and buttock.
- Each will learn how to properly elongate the body for entry maneuvers from the side of the pool and off the diving board.
- Each will learn to properly manipulate the diving board by learning to approach a dive, leave the board and enter the water( forwards and back wards).
The goal of the course is that every participant will learn to do a front jump, rear jump, front dive tuck , pike, back dive layout, forward somersault tuck and back somersault tuck.
We will conclude the diving season with attempting to do a Forward one and one-half somersault tuck.
The season will conclude with a competition between the divers and certificates will be presented to each participant.
