Meeting our Coaching Team!
Charlie Tu (Head Coach)
Charlie has won numerous international events as a diver as well as the Chinese national championship. As a coach, he was trained in China and has been working with the CAMO diving club since 2009. His success in the Canadian system is reflected in the results of his divers highlighted by an international gold medal by his athlete.

Ruby is originally from Hong Kong now studying at the Mount Royal University, majoring in Sports and Recreation Management .

She took up diving at 14 and won several gold medals at the HK Open Diving Competition in 2003 - 2005.

His special skills in spotting on belt and manual on dry land exercises is a great asset for the club (thanks to the experience which he learned and developed from years of training in China).
