We are excited to kick off the 2019 High School Diving
season for St. John's County!
Atlantic Coast Diving Jax is proud to host high school diving practices and dual meets for St. John's County High Schools Bartram Trail, Creekside, Nease, Ponte Vedra, and St. Augustine. Below is all the information you will need to know regarding HS Diving with Atlantic Coast Diving Jax. We hope that you all have a great season!
The St. John's County schools do not pay for diving training, so we ask that our High School divers join our club team. By registering with the club team, you are committing to two days per week, Tuesday and Thursday at Bolles from 5:30-7:30pm at $190/month (mandatory for participation in meets/post season), for August, September, and October. Divers who qualify on to the championship season (Districts, Regionals, and States) will be charged a prorated fee for the beginning of November to cover the last couple weeks of training.
Divers are welcome to join us for dryland practices on Wednesday from 5:30-7:30pm with Coach Nathan for an additional fee. To choose an additional day, please select High School 3 Days/Week ($240). Divers may not use a dryland practice as a makeup lesson for missing one of their mandatory Tuesday/Thursday practices.
*Our current or past club divers that are already registered through Club Assistant will not need to repeat their registration.
Waivers of Liability - Bolles and ACD Jax
By registering for the team, you are accepting all waivers of liability for Bolles and for ACD Jax including the dryland facility as well as the ACD Jax Team Handbook which outlines how our team operates and behavior guidelines for both divers and parents. The forms have been attached so you can print, sign, and return at your earliest inconvenience. Divers without their signed waivers will not be allowed to participate until they have turned them into Coach Nathan.
AAU Individual Membership
Diver's will also need to purchase an Individual Athlete Membership through the AAU (https://play.aausports.org/login/tabid/36231/Default.aspx?returnurl=%2fdefault.aspx ). You will need to be linked to our program by using the club code WY6E47. The membership is $14 and will last until August 2020. You will receive a confirmation email once the membership has been purchased. In the confirmation email, there will be a membership card and number. If you'd like you are more than welcome to forward us that email so that we have your diver’s membership number.
Should a diver choose to continue diving after the high school season, this membership will allow them to participate in the AAU Meets we will attend as a club team. All divers will need to have this membership purchased no later than September 1st.
If your athletes name does not appear on our list of approved divers, we will not be able to let them participate in any practices until they have their membership.
High School Schedule
On meet days, divers practicing with ACD will have from 5:30-6:30pm to practice and warm up and meet will begin at 6:30pm. We will do our best to end by 7:30pm, however, depending on the number of divers in the meets we may run over a little bit. Diver’s not participating in ACD practices but competing for their respective HS’s will be able to warm up from 6-6:30pm.
The meet schedule will be finalized as soon as the swim schedules have been posted and confirmed.
Our program uses the app GroupMe for all our main communication. Through this app, we can have group conversations as well as private messaging. If you do not have the app, please consider downloading it. You will receive text messages if you do not have the app but you will not have full access to the thread.
Once your diver has filled out and signed all the waivers, registered with the team, and purchased the AAU membership, we will add your contact information into the 2019 High School GroupMe thread. Please make sure to let the coaches know of all contacts you would like to add to the GroupMe including Parents contact.
Post Season Diving
Any divers wishing to continue diving after the HS season are more than welcome to join our club program and train with us! As a bonus we will waive the annual registration fee of $100!
