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. If you can swim the length of a pool we invite you to give it a try!

ᐅ ᐅ Practice Schedule
There are no minimum requirements to join our team (except for our National crew). With that being said, we our schedule changes based on our pool availability. Flexibility? We have that. You will be offered multiple practice options to pick from. You can come to all or just one practice per week - that is up to you! You can find the complete practice calendar by clicking here.
ᐅ ᐅ Travel
We understand and know that not everyone is wanting to travel. If you are interested in diving but do not want/know if you can travel for meets - just let us know! We do require your future MLA Diver to participate in our home meets (which are not that many, we promise!) But, just like any other sport, we need to measure your divers progress. They can have fantastic practices but, we are a performance sport. You have to be able to execute under pressure - hence why we encourage you participate as much as you can.
