Rippin Dawgs Dive Club

Our mission is to teach athletes transferable life skills through the sport of diving.

Skills such as teamwork, self-confidence, perseverance, tenacity, facing fears, as well as physical and mental strength, are nurtured and cultivated while learning different and more difficult dives at every level – and cheering on teammates throughout the process.

We offer all levels of training, from beginner diving lessons to summer prep to elite Junior Olympic training. Each level offers progressively more training days per week, deeper skills, longer training sessions and longer practice times.
