WELCOME TO SOUTH SHORE DIVING!!!

SSDC divers embody the best qualities of sportsmanship, work ethic, and pride, fostered by a close-knit, supportive team community.  We take seriously the development of our athletes as competitive divers in a safe and methodical way, but are most proud of how they apply the leadership lessons learned from diving as they move beyond the world of diving: to college, work, and beyond.  SSDC divers proudly represent their team, their schools, and their communities, competing at local, state, and national competitions, and maybe someday as an Olympic hopeful!

ACHIEVEMENTS

South Shore Diving Club (SSDC) was founded in 2004 in an effort to help kids achieve their athletic diving goals.   All the coaches at SSDC are continually learning more and more from our athletes than I think that they learn from their coaches.  Here are some of our accomplishments:

  • 4 -  AAU DIVING "NATIONAL CHAMPION" TITLES.
  • 36 -  AAU ALL-AMERICANS (Top 12 in the country).
  • 3 -  USA DIVING - NATIONAL DIVING CHAMPIONSHIP FINALIST
  • 2 -  NISCA HIGH SCHOOL DIVING ALL-AMERICAN (top 100 in the USA)
  • 86 -  MIAA HIGH SCHOOL STATE DIVING CHAMPIONSHIP FINALISTS.
  • 19 -  MIAA CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS
  • 5 -  MIAA SECTIONAL CHAMPIONS
  • 1 -  MIAA D1 STATE DIVING CHAMPION.

The Team's focus with these young athletes is to lead by example and that there is no substitute for hard work and working as a team to achieve your goals.  I am so proud of the team's accomplishments, but I know it is just the tip of the iceberg!

SSDC COACHES
