The learn-to-dive program is for first time or beginner divers learning the fundamentals of diving. LTD is also for individuals who enjoy diving, but are not yet ready to commit to the expectations of the higher club levels. Divers are expected to attend practices 1-4 days/week for 1 hour. This can be either dryland or water training. An AAU athlete membership is required. Divers may also choose to compete in Future Champion meets or AAU lesson meets.
Pre Team Tier 1 and Tier 2
Pre Team Tier 1
This is the first club level that requires a coach’s invitation. Pre Team is divided into 2 tiers based on skill. Coaches will determine which tier the diver belongs based on their current skill level, and how it corresponds to the USA Diving Future Champions program. Tier 1 divers are more advanced than beginners and compete in introductory level competitions. These competitions are AAU Novice & Intermediate meets, and USA Diving Future Champion meets. A USA Diving membership is required in addition to the AAU membership. Divers may only attend USA Diving Regional Championships if they are within 2 hours of Tallahassee. Tier 1 divers are expected to attend practice a minimum of 2 days/week for 2 1⁄2 hours. They may also add in dryland only classes.
Pre Team Tier 2
This are the second and third club levels that requires a coach’s invitation. Pre Team Tier 2 divers are those who have the required dives to compete in the 1 Meter JO Event for their age group, and are working on achieving a 3 Meter JO Event list. These divers are experienced and compete in higher- level competitions which are AAU Novice/Intermediate & JO meets and USA Diving Future Champions & JO meets. A USA Diving Competitive Blue membership is required in addition to the AAU membership. Divers who want to train more than the lessons program but do not plan to dive in the USA Diving National Circuit will be a part of the Pre Team Tier 2.
Divers are expected to attend practice a minimum of 3 days/week

Junior Olympic (JO)
This is the third club level that requires a coach’s invitation. Our JO Divers are those who meet not only the USA Diving JO dive requirements based on their age group, but also possess the degree of difficulty to compete at the Regional, Zone, and National level. These divers are also expected to perform at practice and competitions at the highest level possible.
JO compete in AAU, JO meets, and USA Diving JO meets. A USA Diving Competitive Gold membership is required in addition to the AAU membership. JO Divers will be expected to compete in the AAU National circuit and the USA Diving National circuit. They are also expected to attend at least 3 invitationals throughout the year. As well as any meets that are in Moultrie, GA.
Furthermore it is the expectation that all of these divers are training to try and qualify for USA Diving Nationals so they are expected to stay and train all summer. Family vacations, or camps should be planned for after the diver has finished the USA Diving National circuit for the summer. In order for the divers to be able to be completely prepared for competition they need to make sure they are taking full advantage of the summer schedule and staying consistent with their workouts. If they take days, or weeks off for vacations not only will they get physically out of their diving shape but they will mentally struggle as well. If a diver plans to attend Zones or Nationals they should not go on vacation until after their last event.
Divers aged 9&U & 11&U, 12-13 are expected to attend practice 3-4 days/week for 2 1⁄2 hours. They are also able to add dryland only practices as well.
Divers aged 14-15, 16-18 are expected to attend practice 4-5 days/week for 2 1/2 hours.
This is the fourth club level that requires a coach’s invitation. This group is for divers who plan to compete in National Championships every year, and/or divers who will be competing in Senior events. This group if for the most experienced divers, who show commitment, dedication and an ability to place well at National Championships.
Elite divers compete in AAU National Championship, USA Diving National Championships, USA Diving Senior meets, and international meets. Divers are expected to attend practices 5 days/week for 2 1⁄2 Hours. A USA Diving Competitive Gold membership is required in addition to the AAU membership.

Diving is fun for people of all ages. You are never too old to experience the sport of diving. We are looking to expand our programs and offer masters diving classes. For right now we will be offering a masters diving class to anyone 18 and over one day a week. As the demand for masters diving expands so will our class schedule. We will be teaching our masters divers the basics and fundamentals of diving and as they grow and improve we will be teaching them lists so that they are able to compete in competitions.

Two Days a week:$100/month
Three Days a week: $140/Month

Dryland is by far the most important part in training for diving. You can accomplish a lot more in a shorter amount of time than you can in a pool because you do not need to climb out of the pool each time. Our dryland only classes will focus on diving specific drills and skills to help the divers progress as quickly as possible.
