We have competed in the NVSL since 1993. From undefeated in Division 7 in 2013, to Division 5 in 2014, and up to Division 4 in 2015 and 2016, Division 6 for 2017, and back to Division 7 for 2018. OHSC Dive Team is a team looking to expand in numbers and to rise in the 2018 season. We look forward to seeing our 2017 divers back for the 2018 season. The NVSL Dive League offers meets for all ages and all ability levels.
Orange Hunt Swim Club hopes to add to our current group of divers by offering other swim clubs in the Springfield area that have NVSL swim teams but no dive team the opportunity to try dive with the Sharks. OHSC will offer a special “dive only” membership category for any family with divers that wish to dive with the Sharks. These forms are available on the forms page of our web site under dive.
We are offering a FREE meet and greet and “try dive” with our dive coaches on Wednesday and Thursday, May 30 and 31 from 5-6:30PM. We welcome divers from other northern Virginia swim clubs to join us at our “try dive” event.
Our beautiful dive boards were new in 2016! Our coaches know how to teach our kids sound fundamental technique and skills, proper physical and mental preparation, and competitive strategy. Our goal is to provide our children with a unique path forward to developing and getting the most out of their personal athletic abilities and have lots of fun!
Our returning co-coaches
We are pleased to have Aurora Carle back to co-coach our Sharks. Aurora has been a member of the OHSC dive team for eight years. She currently dives at Mason Dive Academy and has dove for ADC in current years. In addition, she was a high school diver all four years and the dive team captain her senior year. Aurora is a graduating senior from West Springfield High School and will be with the OHSC Sharks for the next few years. Aurora was a high point holder for five consecutive years and went to All- Stars four times, as well as diving in the Regional meet for WSHS. Aurora will compete with our senior girls in addition to fulfilling her coaching duties. Aurora will also offer private dive lessons at the club for 1/2 hour sessions. Inquire with the guard staff if interested.
We are also pleased to welcome back Lauren Schloegel to our dive coaching staff. Lauren is a rising senior at West Springfield High School where she has been voted dive team captain for the 2018-19 season. While on the High School team, Lauren has been awarded rookie of the year, coaches award, high point scorer, and has been on the regional team all three years. Lauren started diving for NVSL at the age of 9, where she holds a freshman, junior, and intermediate record at her previous pool and has also qualified for All-stars six times. With a strong background in gymnastics she brings a unique perspective to coaching dive. Lauren says "My goal as a coach is to encourage each athlete to challenge themselves to try more difficult dives, regardless of their current ability, while still having fun".
Regular dive practices will begin Monday, June 4, 2018 for the entire team. Practices will be held on weekday afternoons from 4:30PM to 6:00PM through the final day of the Fairfax County school year (currently projected to be Friday, June 15).
