2012 Dive Team

Welcome to Dolphin Diving!

The 2012 NVSL Dive Season is going to be an exciting one for the North Springfield Dolphins. We are in Division 5 again this year. We’ll be facing some great competition, as we will be diving against: Chesterbrook, Old Keene Mill, Rolling Hills, Sleepy Hollow (SHRA) and Kent Gardens.

This year we’re hosting two home meets. We are looking for eager divers, as well as eager parents to participate in the many volunteer opportunities to support the dive team. Experience is not required (for the diver or the parent). I especially need parents who are interested in judging to participate in one of the judges’ clinics, so that we can share the volunteering responsibilities for the meets. I am trying to arrange a clinic at North Springfield before the first meet.

Each meet home meet we need to provide 3 table workers and 2 judges. Each away meet we need to provide 3 judges and 2 table workers. I would really like to “spread the wealth” this summer and see some new faces volunteering. All new parents are welcome to volunteer; we are happy to train you and all are welcome regardless of experience. I will be experiencing with a new sign up process for meet volunteers so that we have volunteers in place before the start of the season. More about that later!

It is my pleasure to announce our new dive coach, Amanda Imbriglia. Mandy joins the Diving Dolphins with a love for the sport and a great deal of experience both on and off the boards. She was a member of the Ravensworth Dive Team and Bishop Ireton Dive Team. Last year she was the Head Coach at Wakefield Chapel. She comes highly recommend by Daniel Martin, who sadly had to say goodbye this year due to commitments at Virginia Tech this summer. Mandy will continue where Daniel left off working with all divers in every age group and skill level. She will be emphasizing proper dive technique, good sportsmanship, teamwork, confidence on the board and most of all having fun. In addition to diving, we hope to offer a variety of fun activities and events for the kids, with enough parent support and involvement we can make it a fun and exciting year.

Jasmine Bounds and Jack Gigliotti will support Mandy with her coaching duties.
