Dive Coaches

The Chesterbrook Diving Dolphins has an experienced and talented coaching staff. 

Head Coach Marc VanDyken is returning for his fourth year at Chesterbrook.  He has 17 years of dive coaching experience, most recently at Alexandria Dive Club.  Through his years of coaching, he has had the privilege of working with divers with all levels of experience, from beginners to national champions and Olympic Trial qualifiers. Many of his former divers went on to dive at the collegiate level and some are now coaching programs of their own.  Marc is a Fifth Grade teacher at Westgate Elementary School in McLean.

Coach David Troskey is also coming back for his fourth year at Chesterbrook.  Dave started diving at age 5 and continued onto the University of Delaware where he still holds the 3 meter record.  He is the Student Information Assistant at Chesterbrook Elementary School.  Dave also coaches for Mason Dive Academy during the off-season.
