Springboard Diving Class Offered at Rhodes College

Your child can learn a new skill in the water in the Springboard Diving class that will be offered to preschool through twelfth grade swimmers this spring in Memphis.

“The class will focus on the fundamental skill and drills in the sport of diving,” said diving coach Victoria Wood. “Divers will learn how to safely complete their approach, take off and entry position in the water while also focusing on their dryland skills with stretching, conditioning, and flipping.”

Wood, who is the diving coach at Rhodes College, is offering the class independently at the college. She has been a college diving coach for six years at division I and III levels, club diving, and a gymnastics coach for more than 10 years.

People who attend the class do not have to be expert swimmers but will have to meet the perquisites of the class to participate. Students will need to be able to swim well enough to get from the board to the wall safely.

“The purpose of the class is to introduce children to the sport of diving and teach fundamentals. Each diver will progress at their own individual pace.” said Wood who also wants the class to be fun for the students. “I have been a USA Diving Athlete representative and National Team Member, finaled at World Championships, and was a multi-SEC Champion and NCAA diver of the year.”
