NCC Sharx Dive Team
The 2017 Dive Team registration form is here:
One Meter Dive Competition
Entering our 18th season, the Dive Team is open to all NCC members age 18 & under on June 1.
The season is composed of five dual meets held on Sunday afternoons followed by Divisional & All-Star meets.
We welcome all ages and levels of divers (your child must be able to swim safely from the board to the ladder and be mature enough to take direction from our coaches).
Divers who compete in at least two meets are eligible for the right to qualify for Divisionals.
Visit the Montgomery County Diving League home page.
Dive Team News
The NCC Sharx Dive Team is revving up for another great season and are looking forward to welcoming back our returning divers and hopefully recruiting many more kids who’d like to try the fun & exciting sport of diving. No experience is necessary, our coaches are experienced with children of all ages and levels in a positive and safe environment!

2017 Meet Schedule
Please see the MCDL website for our meet schedule, here: http://www.mcdiving.org/content/schedule/2017
All dual meets are Sunday afternoons beginning at 4 p.m. (with warm-ups prior), on June 18th and 25th and July 2nd, 9th and 16th. This year NCC is hosting the Divisionals meet on July 23rd!
Integral to the success of the dive team are our wonderful volunteers. We need volunteers at each of our meets to help with judging, scoring, and ribbon writing. For volunteer signups, use this Signup Genius page. We are also looking for a social events coordinator, volunteer coordinator, meet manager, meet concessions manager and banquet manager. Please let us know where your interests lie and we’ll find a volunteer slot for you!
We are excited to work with you on another successful dive season for the NCC Sharx. We will have a staffed table on Opening Day of the pool where you can meet the coaches and sign up in person. Feel free to contact us anytime to discuss any questions, issues or concerns!
We Need Judges and Referees!
NCC needs dive parents to become Judges and/or Referees. No experience is needed – really – and it’s a great way to get a close up view of the kids diving!! Our pool needs to provide 3 judges per away meet and 2 judges and 1 ref for each home meet so it is essential that we have many of the parents go through the training. Montgomery County dive league offers one session Officials Clinics, i.e. training sessions, throughout the dive season. They are generally an hour or so long & tell you all you need to know. The judging clinics this year are listed below.

Please let Natasha Leskovsek know if you are interested in one of these trainings.
