Introduction

The Dive Team at the Beach Club strives to provide a positive, enjoyable atmosphere where athletes can strive to learn and achieve at their own diving ability level. It is not important for participants to have any previous experience in the diving field in order to join the team. Participants must be under 17 years old and feel comfortable jumping off the diving board.

In the summer, the Diving Team competes in the Midlakes Swim League. As part of league experience, the Beach Club hosts diving meets, which feature the MIBC Divers competing against other clubs in our area.
