GIRLS SWIM & DIVE DONATIONS
Outside of the salary for the head coach, MVHS athletic programs are not funded by the school or district. We rely on donations and fundraising to operate our program. Donations can be made via the online web store or via check payable to MVHS Girls Swim & Dive. If you pay by check, the student will need to deliver the check directly to the student store on campus, not to the coach. The requested donation varies based on the cost of running the program and the number of girls on the team. The donation request amount is $150. Donations are not required to be a part of this or any MVHS team. Thank you for your donation!

Below are some strength training practices you can do on your own. Be sure to always warm-up before and warm-down after strength training. Please remember to use perfect form. Using perfect form helps prevent injury. If you have any pre-existing injury, do not do exercises that use that body part. Do your physical therapy exercises instead. If you experience sudden or sharp pain, stop the practice immediately. Ice the sore body part and let your parents and coach know about your injury. Remember: safety first and ALWAYS!

Exposure of athletes to collegiate coaches helps in the recruiting process. In addition to keeping your coach informed of your college plans, recruiting websites can help. College Swimming offers free and low-cost options for gaining exposure to colleges. Some dive collegiate diving coaches are also registered on this site. Click here to see the website.
Divers to College is a free recruiting website designed specifically for divers. Click here to check it out.
Next College Student Athlete (NCSA) is a free recruiting tool you can access through your online athletic clearance at www.athleticclearance.com. It is free and has some good information that applies to swimming, but a significant portion of the information provided applies to ball-type sports. Don't buy the subscription here.
