Dive Team

Summer Diving is a fun experience for both competitive divers and those who are interesting in learning and looking to have fun. Manor Woods Dive Team welcomes children of all ages and skill levels.  Children must pass the MW Pool swim test to participate.  

Please note, Dive team registration is "first-come, first-served," as we may have to cap team size due to limited board time.

Dive Team Goal

The goal of the Manor Woods Dive Team is to teach safe diving and promote good sportsmanship in a supervised and supportive environment. The team welcomes individuals with no prior experience as well as experienced divers. Beginning divers learn the basic front and back jumps and dives; returning and experienced divers may learn more complicated somersault, reverse, inward, and twisting dives.

Dive Team Eligibility

Anyone up to age 18 can join the dive team. No previous experience is necessary. Our experienced coaches will teach you everything you need to know about safe diving. The only requirements to join are:

  • A willingness to learn, listen and exercise safety
  • A commitment to dive in our competitive meets
  • Have fun!

Parent commitment is important. We rely on parent volunteers to support our team. All parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer to help at the meets and special events. There is a job for everyone.

All divers must be registered and insured (by payment of registration fees) before divers can participate in dive practices.
