This includes strength, conditioning, flexibility and diving specific drills at every practice.
A spotting belt and rig are always utilized for this training. Divers perfect their diving movements and learn new dives in this highly repetitious training. Diving improvements are made faster and easier without the fear of painful landings.
After a diver has demonstrated their ability to execute a new dive in the spotting belt on the trampoline, they keep the belt on and are spotted in the ropes on the diving board into the water. Here they are spotted until they are confident that they can do a new dive by themself. How great is this? They can learn a new dive without ever a smack!
One of the most difficult things to master in diving is the hurdle and the forward and backward take-off from the diving board. Olympic divers work on these elements everyday. High Dive Champions also work on this everyday. A diving board where you don't go into the water, but a big foam pit, right on the pool deck! Coaches use this station every day for more efficient learning.
After a diver executes a dive into the water and receives their coaches feedback, a diver is able to look at the big screen TV right behind the diving board to watch their dive that is on a 30 second delay. A coach may also show a divers specific things in the video replay that can be shown in slow motion or in freeze frame!
In order to keep muscles warm and to dive in the best athletic conditions, hot showers are available for divers under the 3-meter boards, in between dives.
