TALLAHASSEE, Fla.- Divers from across the country will have the opportunity to receive instruction from elite coaches while using world championship caliber facilities this summer at The Seminole Diving Academy.
“We are very excited to have diving camps at FSU for the first time in a long time,” camp director Yahya Radman said. “We are very proud of our beautiful campus and state-of-the-art facilities and the opportunity to show them off in the summer. We believe in quality over quantity and are very eager to show our students a good time while teaching the most simple basics and perfecting them so that when the campers return home, they can build on a solid base of fundamentals.”
The camps, which begin on June 12, will offer instruction to divers 10 years and older of all skill levels. There are three sessions, each lasting five days and campers will be treated to first-class instruction from Olympian and Florida State diving coach Patrick Jeffrey. Campers will learn the best strength and conditioning techniques, how to maximize their flexibility, the fundamentals of ripping front and back entries, Olympic secrets to twisting and somersaulting fast, correct body alignment to improve hurdles and back presses and how to mentally prepare for competition and practice. Each diver will also receive a personal evaluation with exercises and techniques to continue working on into the school year. Divers will train at the Morcom Aquatic Center which has hosted U.S. National Championships and World Championship qualifying events.
Registration ends on May 1 and for more information about the camps, including pricing, view the camp brochure by clicking here.
