Glenwood Diving: Friday-Saturday-Sunday Look Ahead!

Hello Dive Families!                                                                                    Thursday, June 13


This is it – school is out and summer is in! As we roll into our first dive meet this weekend, here are super essential things to know –


Shammies are in: They are awesome! You may have seen a few around the pool already! We will have them at practices as much as we are there; if you'd like to put your name in for one, please email  ( as our supply is limited. Cash, Venmo or check is fine ($22; 2 for $40).


Meet volunteers: You all have blown us away! Normally we are sweating this; but no, not this year. Thank you all who have signed up for Sunday's meet! We are shy one second half judge but otherwise fully stocked. THANK YOU!!!


Friday practice: This is our final practice before the meet! Divers will run through their dives and sign their dive sheets. If you are away tomorrow but diving on Sunday, our coaches will have the sheets handy to sign during Sunday warm ups. If you are away this weekend, we’ll miss you! Please help our coaches plan for the meet and let them know, and/or update your diver’s availability in Team Unify (select the Edit Commitment button for each meet).


Friday pep rally: We are joining up with the Swim team to kick off our weekend meets with pep rally fun on the back deck! Please join in Friday, 6:30pm! This week's theme, Community Conquering Cancer, covers two important Glenwood ways: a potluck (last names A - M: main dishes; last names N - Z: salad/fruit/bread/dessert/drinks) to come together over a great meal, and service through supporting this cause that is near to our Glenwood family. Swimmers and divers are welcome to bring any contribution for a team donation supporting cancer research.


Sunday meet, GW vs RC: Woo hoo! Our first meet is close by at Rock Creek Pool (8619 Grubb Rd, Silver Spring)! 12& unders plan to arrive by 3:15 in order to warm up promptly at 3:30. The meet begins as close to 4:00 as possible. A separate email will give an overview of the meet and how they run. 13-18s warm up at the break after 11-12 boys (ribbons for 12& under are awarded during the break). We have a great turn out of new divers this year and can't wait for our entire team to kick off the season!


Our divers have been working hard and learning so much these past weeks! Thanks for helping them get to practice during the crazy schedules at the end of the school year! Some have asked about lessons – our coaches are happy to arrange times directly. See Haley, Noah, Dermot or Clara around the dive well to schedule directly with them.


That’s it for now, but likely a bit more to come as we gear up for Sunday! And, if we miss you over Father’s Day, we’ll see you at Fun Day Monday when we move to the Summer Morning or Afternoon practice schedule!


PS: If you haven't registered in Team Unify and plan to dive on Sunday, we need you in by this evening (Thursday)! Traci, czarina of TU will be out of town and we need you in TU in order to register your diver with MCDL. It just takes a minute!
