Level One participants use the side of the pool, mats, 1-meter springboard and 3-meter springboard, for a variety of skills and drills. Level One divers must be able to swim and follow directions. Lessons are once or twice a week. The cost of the lessons are $65 per month for lessons once per week, or $125 per month for lessons twice per week.

Participants in our Level Two classes practice for 90 minutes. Younger kids with a background in competitive gymnastics but little diving experience are encouraged to start with Level Two classes. Participants of any age who have not yet learned back dive tuck and inward dive tuck are also well-suited for at least one session in these classes.
