Session 2 will begin on Saturday the 2nd of November.  The session will continue on Saturdays and Sundays for six weeks  (there will be a week off in the middle of the session for Thanksgiving) and will end on Saturday, December 14th.

Basic Session info

Due to the pool time available to us, we will break each session into two groups, beginner and intermediate.  The beginners group will practice from 4:30 – 6:00pm and the intermediates will practice from 5:30 – 7:00pm.  There will be a two week break between the two sessions in October.  Divers will choose to practice either once or twice a week (6 or 12 total practices).  A diver can make up any practice throughout the session by staying for an extra time slot or coming an extra day.  Also, at the end of each session, we will host a diving competition to allow the team members to showcase the skills they have learned and improved (dates will be named later).
