Attention familes interested in being a judge for the Dive meets:
The Dive Clinic-to learn how to judge a dive meet-is scheduled for Sunday June 7th from 4:30-5:30 at the Center of Clayton at 50 Gay Avenue in Clayton Missouri in their indoor pool (not the outdoor Shaw Park pool). This clinic is not mandatory for anyone wishing to judge a dive meet, but is very helpful!!
Attention dive families as well as anyone currently signed up to work the Dive Fun Meet:
In addition, we will need to change the date of the Dive Fun Meet currently scheduled for Thurs June 18th. The league scheduled it at the same time and date of a swim meet. Several kids do both swim and dive. The date will likely change to another day that week. Please be on the lookout for the decided date and time.
Attention Dive team families:
In addition, we have had a recent surge in enrollment for Dive Team (over 20 at this point). While we are excited that so many kids are interested, we are wanting to split the practice up to allow for proper supervision, coaching, and time for the kids to practice the dives. We have requested from Riverchase that the competition pool with the boards be available from 5-6pm as well as 6-7pm. This will allow us to split the dive team into two different practices. Once we get approval from Riverchase, Hannah will be contacting parents to see if some families (hopefully about half) can change to to the 5-6 practice and the other half remain in the 6-7pm time slot. For kids enrolled in both swim and dive, and doing the evening practices, the hope would be that you could keep the 6-7 practice time. Please bare with us as we work to remedy this good problem that we currently have.
Thanks so much: Aimee-dive parent rep and Hannah-dive coach
