Head Coach Dive Team:

Joe Costello  
2018 will be Coach Joe’s 10th year coaching the LMT Diving Team. Coach Joe was the Head Diving Coach for Pennsbury High School for the past 8 years, and while at Pennsbury, many of his divers qualified for districts and a few qualified for sates. This year, Coach Joe started coaching Bensalem High School, where he was very successful in teaching 7 beginners how to dive and even brought a few to Suburban One League Championships. He continues to run private lesson programs for beginners and experienced divers that wish to improve their skills. In addition, he has attended many camps run by 7 time Olympic coach Dick Kimball. Coach Joe's enthusiastic coaching style has grown LMT's dive team into one of the largest teams in recent history, winning both the Lower Bucks league championship and the team sportsmanship award in the past. Joe is the father of two daughters, both of whom have dove and now coach for LMT in the summer and have been nationally ranked Junior Olympic divers in 1 meter, 3 meter, and synchronized team diving.
