It is our hope, that our diving program inspires a positive experience for every one of our athletes. Regardless of experience or ability, our focus is on maximizing the potential of each diver individually. We believe the sport of diving can create life-long opportunities for our athletes in the classroom, in the pool, and into their careers.
We are glad you are here! Our goal is to provide a safe and effective learning environment for divers of all ages. All MLA Diving practices are held at the Holland Community Aquatic Center while competitions are spread across Michigan and the Nation. Our year-round program is a great way to get the kids out of the house and into a challenging yet fun sport. Our program is designed to offer athletes of all ages an opportunity to advance in the sports from our beginner classes to our National Advance program.
