Priority of meets for Future Champion and Novice divers:
Training is more important than meets as a fc/nov diver. But the meets help divers set goals and receive feedback on their progress. The divers will compete against other divers who are also new to the sport.
Local Invitational meets: All team divers should plan on attend our local meets. Please mark your calendar in order to plan ahead!
Out of town Invitationals: Future Champ and Novice divers are encouraged to attend the away invitationals but they are not required. The meets help reinforce what the divers are working on in practice. The coaches and divers get valuable feedback. Divers focus more in practice when a meet is approaching and then they work hard after the meets based on meet results. Attending a meet at least every few months will keep divers training at a high level. Competitions are fun.
