Dive Team Updates

Mar 18, 2013   //   by Dive Team   //   Dive Team  //  No Comments

DIVE TEAM:   New this year, all meets will begin at 4 pm rather than 5 pm.  The idea is to keep daylight hours and complete meets on the same calendar day– avoiding coming back the next day.  Also, starting earlier may avoid the rain storms that tend to roll in at that time.

We will  have 3 home meets at Old Farm this year!  Volunteers will be needed for setting up and concessions.  Stay posted!  We are seeded 5th (of 5) in Division 2 and hope to keep or move up with some hard work.  This will be a great year.
