Congrats to Lara Beth!

Lara Beth made it to indoor East Coast Nationals this year by qualifying at the Indoor Regional competition.  She placed 9th on 1-meter which is absolutely fantastic. 

Junior Olympic Regionals

We are planning to take some of our experienced team members to the J.O. Regional meet in Chapel Hill, NC at the University of North Carolina on June 25-27th.  This is one of the qualifying meets for Summer East Coast Nationals.  We are excited to make this trip and showcase some of diverís talents outside our area.  Ask Chad or Amy to see if you can take part in this awesome experience.  It should be a lot of fun.  In order to participate, you must be a member of US Diving ($75 fee to Sports Virginia, Inc.) and you must have a competitive list of dives.  We will be sharing more information as the month of June approaches.

AAU Diving

Because of the cost of membership, Dive Tidewater has decided to offer two national memberships for diving this year.  AAU fees start in September of each year and runs through August and the fees are listed below.  Many of our team members have already joined AAU this year.  USA Diving begins in January and runs until December. We feel offering both forms of membership is the best way to protect our athletes.  See the chart below.  If divers attain a certain level of proficiency, we will have them join USA Diving as a J.O. Diver only.  Dive Tidewater will be registered as a club with both AAU and US Diving this year.  Chad and Amy will also be certified as US Diving coaches. 
  AAU Fee USA Diving Fee
Membership (Athlete) $12/ year $50/ year for Nov., Int.
$75/ year for J.O.
Membership (Coach) $12/ year $150/ year
Club Fee $30/ year $100/ year
 

Payment Information 

Thank you everyone for being so prompt with your monthly payments.  Just a reminder..........All checks for the diving camps (practices) need to be made out to ODU.  If you are making a team payment, you need to make the check payable to Dive Tidewater - Thanks!
