Every term the coaches meet and discuss nominations for divers of the term: one from our learn-to-dive lessons and one from our squads.
The coaches are looking for divers who may have overcome a specific skill or fear, or someone who is consistently trying their best, is motivated at every session and has great attendance.
From our lessons, Georgia has impressed the coaches by overcoming her fear of the 3m board. She had trouble with this previously and even had 121s to conquer her concern. We have seen her doing a number of 3m skills and have noticed her confidence improve. She is a perfect example of not giving up on something that you want to achieve, even if you are scared.
From our squads, we have chosen Alex for a number of reasons. Firstly, his attendance is near perfect. He is rarely late and is always keen to volunteer and help out the club. He consistently works hard in both the pool and dry land, especially the latter, where his strength and conditioning have come on in leaps and bounds.
His diving as a whole has improved significantly and he is always trusting of his coach when asked to learn new dives. It is evident that Alex really loves the sport and it is great to see his hard work paying off.
