Welcome to Star Diving Club
We are a springboard and highboard diving club in Guildford, Surrey.
Our programme is based at Guildford Spectrum.
We are affiliated to Swim England, our national governing body, through Swim England South East Region and have SwimMark accreditation.
Whether you are a complete beginner or have some previous experience, you are welcome to join us.
Catering for all abilities we run a variety of weekly sessions in term-time, six days a week (not Saturdays).

No shoes poolside
Spectrum has asked us to remind everyone that shoes are not permitted on poolside.
Parents or guardians coming to watch classes, drop off or collect children must remove their footwear when entering the pool hall.
The 'spectator' entry for diving classes is through the doors towards the top of the corridor only. Please exit through the same doors.
Only divers are allowed to walk barefooted along poolside to and from the changing rooms.
If the signage that is in place is ignored and the situation does not improve, a blanket ban will be imposed on us.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
Special General Meeting
Big thanks to everyone who attended a special general meeting of the club on Thursday 19th October, where members discussed and voted in
favour of a new constitution.
Our constitution, which was last updated a couple of years ago, aligns with Swim England’s current model articles of association and is an important element in our SwimMark reaccreditation.
Club chairman Stuart Johnson thanked members for showing their support and to those who have contributed in some way towards reaccreditation. Official notification is expected in due course.
Particular thanks were recorded to charity officer Jon Smith for his work on constitutional matters.

Winter club competition
Thanks to everyone who supported and took part in the winter club competition – our main fundraising event of the year. There was a good turnout across 3½ hours of pool time, with a total of 74 divers competing across eight events.
For many in our programme this was their first ever competition. Divers and parents in the first couple of sessions were also treated to dive shows from some of our development and age group squad divers.
The detailed results and a selection of photos from the meet can be found here.
