Upstate Diving Coaches have been registered through the AAU and go through monthly training. Our National Coaches are Safety Certified through USA Diving and have national level coaching and judging experience. The coaching staff works hard to make each practice is beneficial for our divers. Making sure our divers  progress and learn in a structured and mechanically correct sequence sets Upstate Diving apart from any other club. We have the program that creates National Champions. In 11 years we have produced 15 National Champions. Beyond national championships we instill in our divers the principles that make great people: hard work, perserverance, dedication, integrity, courage and commitment.
