American Flyers Diving is a year-round age group springboard and platform diving club designed to teach and develop athletes from novice to the highest ELITE level. The American Flyers diving team has been an official team member of United States Diving since 1995.

MESSAGE FROM THE FLYERS

Our ultimate goal is to teach kids how to dive, how to be competitive, and still have fun. We strive to make a positive experience out of learning something new. Diving is very much an individual effort and every person has a different mental and emotional way of learning. With positive motivation and safe skill development, diving can be a great way to achieve both physical and mental confidence. As a club, each individual learns to contribute to the success of the team, building a sense of camaraderie and accomplishment. These are all skills which we believe are useful in life as well.

 

AMERICAN FLYERS DIVING TRAINING METHODOLOGY

The American Flyers Diving Club utilizes 3 physical training approaches. The first is the most obvious – diving boards and water. The second is visual training. This includes a digital video system to record and play back each dive on a delay so each athlete can see their last dive as they exit the water. The third, and one of the most important, is less obvious – dry land training. This includes a “dry board,” trampoline (both with overhead spotting rigs), and a workout area.

Dry land training is a key element in the progression of safe skill development for diving. This allows a diver to perform the skills at a basic level and master key body positions before progressing to more difficult skills. Correct form and increased repetition aids in a better foundation for muscle memory which are of great importance to any activity. The process of building muscle memory can be greatly sped up with dry land work. During dry land training, a diver will get through many more repetitions in much less time than they will in the water. This, in turn, maximizes practice time. Another great reward that this type of training can provide for divers is a heightened level of confidence in a shorter amount of time.
