People are often in awe of divers and it is one of the most popular sports in the Summer Olympics (tickets often sell out in a matter of hours) but, to many, it seems a bit out of reach, and something only for the most elite athletes.
We see it differently. In reality, diving is a powerful combination of gymnastics and aquatics. If you can swim, and you can roll, you really have the basics of what the sport is built on, and learning its fundamental concepts as early as age 5, 8, or 10 years old can make a huge difference in a child's future mental and physical disciplines and in their eventual success in life.
Aquatic Sports Teach Discipline and Focus
Springboard dive training, aquatics as a whole, can be a powerful arena of accomplishment, helping young athletes to meet the challenge of reaching new heights of mental discipline, grace, and physical performance. Even for the most casual beginner and recreational athlete, dive training can be a powerful opportunity to build a championship mindset for life. We have now been teaching in Seattle for more than 25 years, produced great athletes and competitors but nothing makes a greater impression on us than discovering how full grown adults, who started learning from us as early as 5, have taken their diving concepts into careers and businesses and how much of an impact it has made on their success. No other program has that kind of track record.
