Who we are and what we do: Our Philosophies
The goal of WTRC Diving is to teach the fundamentals of springboard diving, proper board technique, how to compete and have fun doing it. Diving is an individual sport that develops both good physical awareness and mental confidence. As a diver achieves more difficult skills, they develop stronger self esteem. As a team, divers build off each other’s confidence to elevate the entire level of the team. These skills are ones that are useful in all walks of life.
Our philosophy on diving is to teach solid basics and consistent optionals through an emphasis on technique. A diver can only get so far on one or two “awesome” dives or focusing solely on high degree of difficutly dives. It is more important to us to MAKE good divers than TAKE good divers. We look for the diver who is committed to practicing more than one who relies on a few flashy dives. A dedicated practice diver makes a consistent competitor.
