GVSU Swim & Dive

2018 Competitive Diving Camps

Our Camp is a Teaching Camp
Using videos, lectures and discussion we show how elite and Olympic level divers use the Four Basic Keys as they perform in meets. Divers will learn how to apply these same keys to their diving under the direction of their group coach through daily work on the diving boards and while learning dryland drills and perfecting entries. Each diver has their dives video taped and critiqued by one of our coaches each session. We will try and focus on strengthen each divers new dives built over this time.

Immediate Visual Feedback: Immediately after doing a dive, each diver will be able to see that dive replayed on video through the use of our TiVo system.  Stop action, slow motion, and regular speed replays can be used to show them what they did on the dive as soon as they can swim to the side of the pool!
