Talent Squad

 

Talent Squad Information

The Talent Squad is a subset of the Junior Team. This is for divers who have the goal of competing at the National Level.  It is an invitation only group, no tryouts are available. During the Fall session, skill assessments are evaluated among the coaches. The divers who show the most desire, ability and passion for the sport of diving are chosen to be in the Talent Squad, starting with the Winter Session.  Please let us know if your diver is interested in this path.

Divers at this level will have a higher expectation placed on them by the coaches. A strong emphasis will be placed on  mastering the basics, entries, precision of body shapes, strength and flexibility. Coaches will be assessing their effort and willingness to make corrections and master skills on a daily basis. 

Expect to be at this level for two years before moving to the Intermediate team.
