Split Into Groups for an Efficient Diving Practice!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, April 1, 2016

A common problem for many diving coaches is only having one diving board at their facility. If this is a problem for you, Edina High School diving coach, Jason Baumann, gives you a practice plan that’ll allow you to get all of your divers reps on the board while keeping your entire team active.

Practice Planning

Drill Summary: If you’re limited to just one diving board, Coach Baumann suggests you split your team into even groups and have stations for dryland training, poolside training and diving board work. At the dryland station, athletes can work on modeling while the poolside group practices their 100s and 200s. At the same time, divers can be working on their list of dives and entries on the board itself. Remember to rotate to get everyone equal work at every station.
