Practice Level & Schedule

Practice Groups

At the Bangor Region YMCA, we understand that divers at different ages and diving levels will have different needs. This is why our Diving Team practices are divided into 3 different levels. With each level advancement comes an increased practice requirement and team commitment.

The coaching staff will place divers in one of the following levels:

Beginner Level

Youth in this entry level will receive individual attention and a positive experience in competitive diving. Divers will learn the basics of competitive diving and increase their comfort level on the board.
Practice Time: Wednesdays, 5:30 – 7:00pm OR Saturdays, 9:00am – 10:30am

High School Pre-Season Level

Divers in this level will continue to develop the skills that are taught in the Beginner Level as they prepare for their high school diving seasons. Practices will begin to include dryland training and dives with a higher degree of difficulty.
Practice Times: Wednesdays, 5:30 – 7:00pm

Advanced Level

Divers in this level typically have prior competitive diving experience. Divers will begin to focus on the competitive side of the sport including mental preparation, fine tuning skills, and video analysis.
Practice Times: Wednesdays, 5:30 – 7:00pm & Saturdays, 9:00 – 10:30am
