Sun Devil Divers was founded in 1974 by Ward and Joel O'Connell to support springboard and platform diving in the state of Arizona. Our team provides educational diving, including students just learning to dive through Collegiate and National levels.
In addition to offering diving lessons, we provide an environment for students to develop mentally, physically and socially. Our goal is to use diving to teach responsibility, strong work ethic/character and excellence in and out of the pool.
Sun Devil Dives is committed to supporting and fostering diversity, equity and inclusion among its athletes, coaches and members. We recognize that our differences bring richness to the sport of diving and the community.
