SHBR Dive Handbook for 2021

The SHBR Dive Handbook has been updated for 2021. This is a good reference if you have questions about how the dive program works or how you can get involved. The web page has also been updated for 2021.

Upcoming Clinics

We literally cannot run this program without your help. Did you know that it (ordinarily) takes eight to eleven officials to effectively run a dive meet? Each team provides half. In order for the program to continue, we extend a hearty invitation to new volunteers to provide the needed support now and in the years to come.

Adult family members are invited to free-of-cost NVSL clinics so you can learn how to help out with a meet. We need Meet Workers (collect and add scores, announce dives), Judges (award scores to dives), and Referees (experienced judges who determine if a dive was performed correctly and help with dive changes).

The following clinics are available for new meet officials (or ones who want a refresher):

Meet Workers

  • We can train prospective meet workers during the meets. These volunteers record and tabulate the scores. Another one announces the dives.



  • I do not have a recording of this session (yet).

Diving at SHBR

The summer season is here and the SHBR Diving Seals are looking for boys and girls who are eighteen and under to take a plunge and have some fun — no experience is necessary.

Our team prides itself on the strength of its young diver program — if you can pass a swim test, our coaches can teach you to dive! If you don’t think you are young anymore, they still can teach you to dive… especially boys and girls 11-18 years. One good resource for information is our 2021 SHBR Dive Handbook, hot off the press. This has information about our dive program, how meets work, and a lot on sportsmanship.

Summer is a time for kids to have fun, make new friends, and get reacquainted with summertime pool friends. The dive team can help with this while also providing the opportunity to learn the sport. Go Seals!

Our team has a Facebook page! Please go to our Facebook page to see photos and video of our team. If you would like any photos or video posted please submit them to shbrdiving@gmail.com. We’re going to try to keep track of last minute meet changes with our new Twitter handle, @SHBRDive.

Coach’s Message

Another season is approaching, Seals!

I am so excited to be at SHBR this summer and make this season the best one yet! I may be a familiar face to some of you since I dove at SHBR for 10 years. For all of those I haven’t met yet, I’m looking forward to the new faces! For the past 3 years, I have been the head coach of the Annandale Swim and Tennis Dive Team. Before that, I was an assistant coach for SHBR for 3 years, as well as 4 years of high school dive experience. I’m excited to come back home and bring all the things I’ve learned from diving to not only our divers but our parents as well!


This season we are going to have so much fun! But we must remember that good fun and safety go hand in hand. Learning new dives is always our goal, but we aren’t going to put ourselves or others at risk in pursuit of that. We will work hard and set new goals while achieving great practice and meet environments. We will respect each other and our coaches and parents while on deck and at other pools. New divers, we will learn some new stuff at an individual pace and work towards achieving as much as you want to learn. For those who haven’t been part of a team, I can’t wait for you to experience the support from teammates who are learning new dives as well.


We will work together to help our children become the best divers they can be! My goal is a safe, fun practice environment where we can help each other learn and grow. We will work together to make goals and try to reach them by the end of the season. For all those new to the sport, I hope that you ask lots of questions and feel free to contact me outside of practice time with any questions or concerns you might have about anything dive. Working together is essential, and we need parents to volunteer in order to support our kids and help our team function as a whole.

I can’t wait to see you all at the beginning of the season!

Coach Alex
