How Do We Compete?
Divers compete on the 1 meter springboard in five age groups: 8 & under, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14 and 15-18. The 8 & under divers perform three 1m dives in competition; all other divers perform four 1m dives. The dive team coaches will help the divers select and practice their dives.

This is Jacquelyn’s second year as the Dive Coordinator and third year as a member of the Scottish Hills Recreation Club. She is excited to return and continue building the dive team in 2018.
Scottish Hills participates in the Tarheel Diving Association which maintains a website with lots of helpful information including the league schedule, standings, address and contact information for all pools, etc.
Parent volunteers are needed to help run the dive meets. Even if you are new to diving, there are easy ways you can help the team:
Serve as a judge at a meet. Judges assign a score to each dive in a meet. All judges must attend a brief training clinic to be provided by TDA at least once every 2 years. Referees must attend every year. ***We are required to provide three judges/referees per meet.***
Serve as a table worker at a meet. Table workers are responsible for recording and totaling divers’ scores, totaling teams’ scores, and awarding ribbons. All of the table worker jobs are straight-forward and easily learned. If you have never volunteered as a table worker before, consider assisting one of the table workers at an early meet to see how the process works. ***We are required to provide three table workers per meet.***
Stop by All American Swim (1231 NW Maynard Avenue, Cary) to view the 2018/2019 Scottish Hills suit, try one on and/or purchase the suit. Suits can also be ordered in store, by phone or online. Please note that Team Suits are NOT mandatory.
