With few pools having both a dive tank and a lap pool, our divers practice and, most often, compete separately from our swimmers. We all come together at one or two meets during the season, at District finals, and at the State Championship. Diving is the 5th event in a Swim & Dive meet.

    Join the JHS Divers!

    • Diving into the water off the wall
    • Submerging head completely

    • Dive from a 1.0-meter springboard
