About the Sun Devil Divers

Sun Devil Divers is a club diving program focused on the instruction and development of divers ages 5 to early 20's. Our athletes represent a wide range of ages and skill levels, from beginning divers in our Future Champions program, to Junior/Senior National Level Qualifiers. Led by a group of experienced coaches, Sun Devil Divers regularly produce Zone and National qualifiers, Arizona high school state champions and athletes that move on to compete at the college level and beyond.

Our Mission: The team was founded in 1974 by Ward and Joel O'Connell to support springboard and platform diving in the state of Arizona. This corporation provides educational diving, including students just learning to dive, all the way through USA National competitive levels.

In addition to offering diving, Sun Devil Divers provides an environment for students to develop socially. Our goal is to use diving to teach students responsibility and excellence in the sport as well as life skills.
