Clinic Goals

The primary clinic goal is for divers to rapidly improve diving skills. It will help educate, motivate and encourage diver’s progress in the sport. Divers are taught in a structured and enjoyable environment that emphasizes goal setting and individual improvement. Participants will also receive instruction in: conditioning, nutrition, mental preparation for competition, meet strategy and goal setting. Participants will be broken into smaller groups based upon age and ability, which will allow for individualized instruction. The Upstate NY Diving clinic provides an excellent training session for all levels of competitive divers and a fun-filled week with friends.

RIT Pool

The Gordon Field House and Activities Center at RIT is the $55 million complex where the Judson Pool is located. The pool is, quite simply, the best diving facility in the greater Rochester area.
