We are an independent diving club catering for all ages and levels. From complete beginners, intermediate and advanced to novice, skills, age group, elite junior and adult masters.
Our training venue is at Guildford Spectrum, where the diving pool has 1m and 3m springboards and a 5m platform. Our competitive squads also have dry-land training, including trampolining and dry boards.
We can take people on once they can swim 25m and are comfortable in deep water without goggles (usually upwards from six).
We aim for our members to get the most they can from the sport. We provide a pathway for divers to achieve their maximum potential based on their ability, time and commitment.
We are affiliated to Swim England, our national governing body, through Swim England South East Region and have SwimMark accreditation (formerly Swim21).
Our coaches are Swim England-qualified, under the direction of head coach Kirsty McMahon. We have a club committee which meets once a term, providing valuable input, support and direction, enabling the coaches to concentrate on club sessions and events.
We run a comprehensive learn-to-dive programme and competitive squad structure. Our divers compete at a range of levels - from novice and skills to age group, elite junior and adult masters.
We have divers who compete annually at club, county and regional fixtures. Some also compete nationally at the National Skills Finals, National Age Groups, English Schools, England Talent Games, British Elite Junior Championships and GBDF Masters.
Divers in our learn-to-dive programme follow our grade scheme. Certificates and badges are awarded towards the end of term as each level is passed. For more information about the grade scheme click here.
We aim to run internal fundraising club competitions for our entire programme twice a year. Members of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate, have fun and help support the club in the process.
Our squad divers are encouraged to become poolside helpers from the age of 14, and are given the opportunity to become a qualified L1 coach at 16.
This means members can be involved with the club all the way through their school years, allowing them to enjoy the sport, keep active and build confidence and self-esteem in the process.
