Central Massachusetts Diving is a fully sanctioned AAU Diving Program. The coaches are concerned about the divers’ safety. Their experience includes many years of participation in competitive diving as well as coaching at various levels. The mission of Central Massachusetts Diving is to provide a high quality, progressive, year-round diving program for divers ranging from entry level to those competing at the national level. The training will provide technical and safety instruction to athletes who are (or wish to be) competitive in the sport of springboard diving.
The CMD Club is a year round, registered Amateur Athletic Union Diving program. The goal of the program is to engage athletes of all ages in the sport of competitive springboard diving. Each diver will be registered with AAU, and will participate in training sessions that will include them to a wide range of methods and learning experiences. Eventually, CMD would like to see each diver in our program compete in sanctioned events, while on high school teams and even succeed while diving in NCAA division schools.
Diving is a very exciting and defiant sport that unites strength, speed and attitude. Courage, potential and excitement with heart are established to become an all around athlete, but every diver has a joy for this sport in order to thrive. Although many beginners have backgrounds as gymnasts or dancers, diving can still become a sport that can challenge not only the flexibility of the body but also the courage of the athlete, with the goal of striving for excellence.
