Note to all aquatics members and families; these times represent the time your PE class will meet each week.  Every event has a 3 point value towards your PE grade (this includes Saturdays.) Points are earned by attendance.  Be sure to communicate with Coach N before you miss an event.  There will be some make up opportunities.         

·       Divers as well as new diving candidates are urged to consider one of the following dive options:

o   Pacific Diving click here –recommend returning divers look at “JO 2” Option.  Beginning divers look at “Novice 2” Option

o   FAST Diving click here –recommend that divers begin with “Springboard diving” to start with and move to more challenging groups when ready.

o   Either of these two programs will work.  Divers can receive PE credit in the fall and spring

o   Both programs have very reasonable pricing.
