Diving Team

Through swimming, one can learn self-discipline, goal setting, and confidence. Our goals as a team at Medina are to create a safe atmosphere in and around the water, foster a true sense of team among all club participants and to have fun!

The Medina Diving Team is open to athletes ages 6-17 and all ability levels. No prior diving experience is needed to join the team. Divers receive individualized coaching while diving alongside their teammates. Athletes will learn about proper stretching practices, dry land exercises and diving safety. Over the season, a diver will be introduced to new dives, allowing for constant improvement and growth!
MDT divers compete in the Western Diving League, comprised of country clubs in the area. The athlete’s age determines the number of dives they will do in a meet. Participants receive ribbons or medals for placing in competition.

Through diving, athletes can develop their goal-setting skills and sportsmanship. Diving can also help to improve confidence and willingness to try new things. Our team goal is to foster positive, enthusiastic athletes and to create a great diving experience for all ages and abilities!
