Joining A Diving Club

If you want to be as good as Tom Daley, then you’ll need to join a diving club so you can get lots of practice.

Ask your parents to check if the club is swim21 accredited. They can find more information about swim21 here.Diving is one of the most popular Olympic sports with the twists, flips and turns being enough to impress anyone!

Being a good diver takes a lot of time to practice and divers usually join a diving club so they can learn and train together. You can join one too if you’re strong, flexible and fearless!

You can start off with Flip n Fun to give you a taste of diving if you are aged 5-11.

If you are older talk to a club about taster sessions.
