Performance Team  (15 - 25 hours a week)

Head Coaches: Nunzio Esposto

Divers demonstrating the ability to perform and train at an Elite level will be invited to join the Elite Performance Team.  Divers are expected to qualify for Nationals; this requires 100% commitment to training; attendance to all areas (dryland, pool & weights), coachability (the ability to want to and to make corrections), ownership of diving (the ability for the diver to communicate openly and constructively with the coach) is a few examples.
