FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

1. Is diving safe? YES. Diving skills are taught and learned according to the individual. A diver's age and readiness are taken into account. The use of mats on the pool deck will help in getting the new diver comfortable with the proper techniques for diving off the board.

2. What kinds of dives will my kids do? Divers of all ages start by learning the fundamentals and progress as they are ready. Each child is taught and coached based on their abilities. The youngest divers start with forward and backward straight jumps and progress to dives when they are comfortable.
 
3. Who can join the Dive Team?  Any member less than 18 years old, who successfully passed the Forest Hill swim test, is eligible to join the dive team. If a diver has reached the age of 19 prior to graduating from high school, and has not yet entered college, he/she will remain eligible for competition until the end of the season, following high school graduation.

 

4. Does the practice schedule allow for my child to do both Dive Team and Swim Team?  YES. If help is needed in getting a child transitioned from/to another activity, the older dive team members can assist with that. Parents can let the dive representatives (Monica Ivy and Janet Novey) know if such assistance is requested.
