2018 Summer Camp
JUNE 3rd – JUNE 7th
(Registration will close Monday, May 7, 2018)
(Check in June 2nd @ Boggy Pond Plantation)
The 2018 Moss Farms Diving Camp takes place at one of the most iconic pools in the country. Rich tradition, culture and history have been a part of Moss Farms Diving since it’s inception. Coaches and athletes alike have been distinguished, decorated and recognized with numerous awards and national/international achievements.
All campers have the opportunity to compete at our high level meet after their five days of training at our storied diving well and our USA Diving Regional Dryland Training Center after. The meet has been intentionally placed between Regionals and Zones one June 8th through the 10th. (Please inquire about meet details if you’re interested).
Divers of intermediate ability and higher are eligible to attend the 2018 Moss Farms Diving Camp and must be at least 9 years of age. During their training in Moultrie, the divers will be immersed in a great training environment with top caliber coaches. We are limiting our camp capacity to 24 divers to ensure that we will maintain a 6:1 ratio of athletes per coach for optimum feedback and repetitions. As camp fills to maximum capacity we will be inviting two guest coaches (TBD) to help us meet the desired coach to athlete ratio. The diver’s training will focus on mechanics, video analysis, learning how to self-check during training, gaining crucial diving knowledge, as well as learning and understanding proper progressions to train divers for long-term success. Don’t miss out on this tremendous opportunity to send your diver(s) or entire team!
