      WELCOME TO THE 2018 MHC DIVE TEAM

 The MHC Dive Team is looking forward to another great season of diving, competing for our eighth year in NVSL Dive Division 1.  We are thrilled to have Hailey Fisher returning as our Head Coach.  Hailey dives for Alexandria Dive Club and Mount Vernon High School, and is a three-time Virginia State Champion and two-time All American (Top 100) Diver.  Hailey is supported by our very capable Assistant Coaches, Nathan Holt and Miah Fisher, both ADC/MVHS divers.  Nathan is a two-time All American Diver and 4th place Virginia State finalist, and Miah is also a third place Virginia State Dive Championship finalist.  Alexandria Dive Club head coach & program director Tim Fisher will also be on hand to assist.

 MHC DIVE TEAM REGISTRATION - Registration is available on the pool website, in-person at the pool Memorial Day (May 28th) from 3-5pm, or at dive practices.  Come meet the coaches!

 TRY IT OUT FOR A WEEK - Once a safety waiver has been signed, your diver can ‘try-out’ the dive team for one week before registration is required.  The Piranhas Dive Team welcomes new members, so please come on out!  We’ve had children as young as four on the team, so don’t let age be an issue - the younger they start, the better! Our dive team philosophy is to become the best divers we can, to demonstrate good sportsmanship & team spirit, and to have a fun & safe summer. Safety waivers are available on the website, and paper copies will be at practices.

 PRACTICES & MEETS  Dive practices will usually be in the afternoon from Monday – Friday; 10 years old and younger practice 4-5 pm, while 11 year olds & older practice 5-6pm.  If you have a conflict, come to as much of the practice as you are able, regardless of age. Once the dual meets start, Tuesday practices become our team warm-ups right before Tuesday evening meets.  On Wednesday mornings after a meet, we celebrate with a Fun Day & Team breakfast.  Our Dive Team calendar is posted on the pool bulletin board and is also online.

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS - We need volunteers to run a Dive Meet!   MHC provides two or three Judges to rate each dive on a scale of one to ten, and Table Workers to record scores after each dive and then add up the diver’s score. Finally, Concessions workers feed our hungry divers and raise funds to subsidize our team.  There are NVSL clinics scheduled to teach you everything you need to know.  The 2018 NVSL clinic dates are posted online and on the bulletin board.  Training is free and no pre-registration is necessary.

 QUESTIONS? - Please contact the MHC Dive Team Rep, Karen Lant, at mhcdiveteam@gmail.com or (703) 376-1570.
