dive team

The Tuckahoe Flying Tigers compete in NVSL Dive Division 2. We are counting on last year’s divers to return for another fun filled summer, and we are excited to welcome many new divers to our team. No experience is necessary. Kids ages 5-18 are welcome to join the team if they can jump off the board and swim to the side of the pool. Our program, as well as the NVSL, emphasizes teaching children the proper technique for safe diving and a love for the sport.

 

Registration for the 2018 season will open on Monday, April 16th.


You may register online or in person at the Tuckahoe Open House, or during the first few days of practice.
The date for the Tuckahoe Open House will be Sunday, May 20th from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

Registration Criteria

Registration is essential for insurance purposes, and must be completed before your child can dive with the team.

  • Divers must be members of Tuckahoe Recreation Club in good standing
  • Divers must be between the ages of five and eighteen as of June 1
  • No experience is necessary; however, kids must be able to jump off the board and swim to the side of the pool unassisted

Volunteer Requirement

Each dive team family is required to volunteer at least three times per child during the season or pay the non-volunteer fee of $150. Don’t worry, volunteering is fun and you get a front row seat! See our Volunteers page for more information.
