Welcome to SHARKS Dive!

Welcome new and returning divers to our summer season! We provide a fun and safe environment for your children to learn or practice skills and develop theirs skills in the wonderful sport of diving.

Anyone with any amount of diving experience, whether great or small, is welcome and encouraged to try out the team. We will be more than willing to work with each person to teach them the diving skills they need to succeed.

Our main purpose is for everyone to gain an appreciation for this graceful, exciting sport, while having fun and most importantly, staying safe.

Messages from your Dive Team Rep:
Please join us on Sun 6/3 at 5:30pm for a parent meeting to get more information in-person and meet our Head Coach Jen, as well as our Co-Head Coach, Anita O’Quinn, and Assistant Coaches Micheal Crotty, and Rachel Shogren… And please read our Dive Update “blurb” in our “SHARKBITES” SHRA newsletter which is posted on our website’s home-page (right-hand nav bar).

All our practices, meets, and officials’ clinics are on our SHRA website calendar, but just so you have the dive dates handy in one place, I’ve uploaded a document called “SHRA Dive 2018” under “dive team.”

Please check the main TEAMS page for the age group practices schedule which is different this season. We look forward to seeing you all again soon and welcome your feedback and questions (and offers to volunteer!). Sheri Crotty, diverep@shrasharks.org

Practices

Dive practices for all age groups are held after school until school releases for the summer. Once school is done, dive team will being to practice in the mornings.

Practices will begin the Tuesday afternoon following Memorial Day. Afternoon practices will continue until Fairfax County public schools let out for the summer, at which time we will switch to the mornings. Both afternoon and morning practices will be divided into four groups based on age, (8 and under, 9-12, and 13 and over), to help keep everyone organized and to ensure the maximum amount of practice time possible for each diver. During meets the divers will compete in four different groups based on their ages, 10 and under, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18.

Attendance by every diver at every possible practice is critical for personal growth and the teams’ success. We dive rain or shine! Make sure you call or check this site for weather related cancelations!

Volunteers

There is always a need for parent participation as it takes many volunteers to make these matches and meets happen. These are the major types of volunteer help we need:

  1. 3 Score keepers for each meet (no training required 🙂
  2. help setting up tables and chairs and taking them down after the meet (no training required 🙂
  3. 3 Judges for each meet (some training required)
  4. 1 announcer for each home meet (a little bit of training required)
  5. Collect $ at end of season for coaches’ gift
