Bronze I - Ages 13 and Up - Presently Bronze I & Bronze II are combined into one class of 8 (Various Ages)

All teams dive as part of the USA and AAU registered team Sun Devil Divers. (AAU - Amateur Athletic Union).

All divers must be a registered member of USA Diving and AAU. These are a secondary insurance coverage, which mean that it only takes effect if your primary insurance runs out. The costs for USA Diving is $75.00 for Junior Olympic (Competitive Gold), $25.00 for Future Champions (Competitive Blue-Novice), $12.00 for Just Practice (Limited Athlete Membership) and $14.00 for AAU.  Both insurances are due prior to starting practices.  USA Diving and AAU must be renewed every year before September 1st.

Sun Devil Divers strives to implant in its athletes an understanding and appreciation of such concepts as high self esteem, personal accountability, self motivation, mental toughness, physical fitness, goal setting, respect for others, team spirit and loyalty. We believe that recognition of these concepts is as significant as the athletic achievement itself.

NOTE: Please contact Sun Devil Divers head coach Marc Briggs if you are interested in joining our team.

Bronze I  - Coach: Connor Dignan

Bronze I is designed for divers who are 13 and older who have graduated from Future Champions but are not ready for Silver or Gold yet.  Divers may also join based on a tryout if there is availability.  At this level divers have learned many of the mechanics and directions of dives (forward, backward, reverse, inward and twisting groups).  However, divers still need more time and support to reach one of the higher level classes.  Here divers will dive more days a week then Future Champions and focus more on strength training along with learning more difficult dives.  Bronze I members practices 3 times a week for 1 ½ hours on (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). Parent's of Bronze I members are expected to help out at meets and events.

* It is at the coach’s discretion for divers to move to any level. Divers do not graduate to higher level groups based on the amount of time diving with the team. Divers will be invited to move up based on ability, attitude, mental toughness and over all potential to succeed at a high level of diving, as well as availability in those groups. Divers may also be moved down a level at the discretion of the coach.
