The Delta Valley Diving team consists of divers with varying degrees of skill from novice, to collegiate level. Therefore, divers are often separated into skill level/age. These are the senior divers, Junior Olympic (JO) divers, and Beginning divers. The team practices in an Olympic size pool at San Joaquin Delta College, in Stockton, CA. Our team is very flexible on which days divers attend.
Practice times and locations are currently pending due to the COVID 19 outbreak
Beginners/Future Champions (FC) - This is where new divers begin. They generally have little or no previous diving experience. They work mostly on the basics, such as correct technique, body positioning, and proper diving skills. They compete at a Future Champions level, against other divers of the same skill. Practices are at least 2 days a week.
Junior Olympic (JO) - These are the more advanced divers. They have attained the skills and techniques needed to dive at a higher level of competition. Each diver must be able to execute a set number of dives (based on age/gender) while demonstrating control, power, technique, and grace. These divers also demonstrate the ability to set and work towards goals, and other psychological aspects of diving. The divers in this group compete at local meets and can compete at Regions at coaches invitation. These divers practice 4-5 days a week and weight lift 2-3 times per week.
Senior - These are divers who reach a minimum level of Degree of Difficulty and are competitive on a national level. These divers are training for College or at a National/Olympic level. These divers practice 5+ days a week.
