Future Champions

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.

FUTURE CHAMPIONS - Coaches: Connor Dignan

The goal of our Future Champions class is to excite young students in the sport of springboard diving. Coaches work with divers on learning the fundamentals of forward and backward take offs and dives. Special concentration is paid to establishing correct posture and body alignment as well as strengthening the small muscles of the abdomen, lower back, shoulders and legs. As Future Champion divers improve, divers who are prepared progress to inward and somersaults dives. Often the trampoline and the spotting belts are used to learn these skills. Divers completing this course have the fundamentals to pursue diving further if they desire and there is availability. Parents are encouraged to help with team activities but are not required.

* It is at the coach’s discretion for divers to move to any level. Divers do not graduate to higher level classes 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.
