Descriptions

Transition between Levels
Diving is a highly technical sport with many challenges like coordinating your arms and legs while jumping off a moving object (the board); falling through the air and trying to land within a close distance (1 meter) to the board – and staying in control through the whole skill. This is a lot of information for a child to take in and master. Although you, the parent and external observer, may not see many changes each day, your child is improving and consolidating skills with each class. Creating the proper movement patterns and foundation is essential to being able to move on to more difficult dives, decreasing the incidence of injury. It is common for a child to stay in each level 2 – 4 times as there are many skills to achieve in each level. This could mean that they could stay in each level for a year. Diving teaches children agility, coordination flexibility, jumping and respect for the technical environment. Diving will challenge a participant to achieve and experience skills they couldn’t imagine. Simply put, we keep your child safe and help them progress successfully thru the levels.

 

All instructors are NCCP certified.
