The Chesterbrook Dive Team competes in the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL) Diving Program. http://dive.mynvsl.com/ The team emphasizes fun and safety while also helping divers reach their full potential as athletes. There are no tryouts. To qualify for the team, a child just needs to be able to jump off the board. The coaches will take it from there!
The team typically consists of 60 to 70 divers, ranging in age from 6 to 18. Divers should expect to compete in several meets during the season, depending on their experience and ability. There are team social events as well as an end of season awards banquet. Parental participation is needed at meets and socials. Please see below for more information on the 2021 season.
Participation Waiver: The NVSL requires that all divers fill out a release form (one per diver, not one per family). Once completed, please submit a paper copy of this waiver to the team reps at start of season in order to participate on the team.

2021 Season Info & Updates
The regular season consists of five competitive Tuesday night meets beginning June 22nd and four Thursday night developmental meets. To qualify for a Tuesday night meet, a diver must be able to do the required number of legal dives for their age group. For example, 10 and unders must do three dives (a forward dive, a back dive and a flip). All other divers will compete in Thursday night meets and we have several planned against local clubs. Dive meets start at 6:00pm, with a warm-up session beforehand (4:00pm for home meets and 5:00pm for away meets). In addition to these meets, our divers compete in the NVSL Division Individual Championships, the Wally Martin Memorial 3M Championship, and the NVSL All Stars Championship.
