The Dive Team at Nassau Swim Club is for children of all ages and skill levels. We strive to maintain a balance of learning to dive & compete in a fun and supportive environment. A strong emphasis on dryland to appropriately train our divers is essential for skill development and technique. Children must be able to pass the deep water test and have a willingness to learn.The Nassau Diving Team is a participating member of PASDA (Princeton Area Swimming and Diving Association). We compete against other area teams, as well as in the Championship Meet held at the end of the season. At the conclusion of a meet, individual divers are ranked and awarded ribbons. Also, the individual divers' combined scores result in a winning team.
Divers must be between the ages of 4-18 on June 1. No previous experience is required but divers are required to have completed the deep-end test, and have a desire to have fun. No previous experience is needed to join the team.
Cost and Registration
The cost of Dive team is $200 for the first diver, $175 for each additional diver. Full payment is required at the time of registration. Until Memorial Day, full reimbursement of dive team fees is possible, minus a $25 handling fee. There will be no reimbursements after Memorial Day.
