ALEXANDRIA DIVE CLUB

WELCOME TO ADC

Alexandria Dive Club formed in 2008 and has grown to be one of the top nationally ranked Junior Dive Programs in the United States. Finishing as high as 2nd in 2017.

​We are a year round competitive dive program with novice through masters instruction in a safe, positive and energetic learning environment.  Although highly competitive, we really excel at transforming novice divers into competitive divers.

ADC is big enough to compete on a National level but small enough to know each and every diver enrolled.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our focus:

  • Be Safe.

  • Keep it fun, There is truly an art to having fun and making progress. 

  • Solid fundamentals build the base of all divers.

  • Proper skill progressions to reach higher degree of difficulty.

  • Sportsmanship regardless of finish. Respecting other divers, coaches, and facilities. 

  • Ownership of their diving.  Working hard, facing fears , and goal oriented practice.

  • Strength is required for more complex skills and will be part of the progression.

  • Mental preparedness is the key to progressions. 

 

ADC is a year round competitive dive program that offers Dive lessons through Masters instruction.  The club operates from Sept to Aug each year.

 

Prior to diving, all divers will  register AAU. Advanced divers will also register with USA Diving. Go to the classes page for more instructions on how to register and what options are available to you.
