Dive Team

ALL WESTLEIGH KIDS ages 5-18 are invited to join the Dive Team! Let’s get excited about summer.

 

Westleigh offers a competitive summer dive program regardless of prior experience. Whether your child is a beginner or a seasoned diver, we invite them to join us for a fun and challenging summer experience. We are in Division V of the Montgomery County Dive League (MCDL). The mission of the MCDL is to promote the safety, fun, and learning of the sport of Springboard Diving through instructional practice and age-level competition.

All divers are eligible to compete in dual meets against dive teams within Division in the following age groups, based on gender and age as of on June 1: 8 years and younger, 9-10 years, 11-12 years, 13-14 years, and 15-18 years. The divers begin by learning the basic front and back jumps and dives, and can progress to more complicated somersault, reverse, inward and twisting dives.

Hello Westleigh Families!

The Westleigh Dive Team is gearing up for another fun season.

The 2019 registration form can be found here:

– you can complete it and mail to Dee Weiss as indicated on the form. As in the past, we do offer a “come see if Dive is for you” trial program, where for just the cost of Montgomery County Dive League insurance ($15) you can come to 3 practices and see if you like it!!  After that you can join and the $15 is credited to your dues, but is otherwise non-refundable.  Its a great way to try something new!!

We will send out a practice schedule soon, but will be similar to prior years with all efforts to avoid swim team conflicts so kids can join both!!  Practices are typically between 4-8pm Monday – Friday, practice time slot is typically 2 hour and based on age and ability.

See you on the Boards!!

 

Fun, Friends & Dive
