Lyons Dive Team


    We are a spring board diving club that has levels for all divers and abilities. Anyone with a passion to learn about diving and pursue diving as a sport can find a place in our program. We meet two days a week for eight weeks. We have two different practice groups.
 
Group 1 - Beginner Divers:
      This group is designed to teach the safe and proper way to use the spring board. In this session students will be taught a forward approach and back press. They will then progress to forward and back dives as well as other skills as time and ability permit. Any child who has an interest in diving and can swim comfortably in deep water, can join this class.
  
Group 2 -Advanced Divers:
     This group is designed to introduce more dives and skills to divers who have already mastered the basic dives. These divers should be able to successfully complete a front dive, back dive, and a front flip. Divers will explore dives in each of the 5 diving categories: forward, backward, reverse, twisting, and inward.

 

At the end of each eight week session, the divers will compete in either a dual meet with Wheaton dive club or a mock meet.


All classes take place at Lyons Township High School South Campus location.
 
For the Spring Session, practice times will be:                

        Fridays 6:30-7:30pm Group 1
                              Fridays 7:30-8:30pm Group 2
                              Sundays 5:00-6:00pm Group 1
