I just wanted to drop a note to first say Thank You!
Thank you for believing in Mackenzie and giving her the courage to chase a dream she never thought possible!
Your consistent encouragement gave her back her confidence. SSDC Coaches gave her the love of diving by always pushing her to reach for what she saw as the impossible. When she hit a wall you never lost faith, or doubted her. You simply were patient.
"SSDC gave her the love of diving by always pushing her to reach for what she saw as the impossible."
As we move into her last year of her exciting career I can’t help but think of all the love you have shown Kenzie and my family! .
Last year was a very hard year with many illnesses between Mackenzie and my husband. Once again, you extended your arms and told her she is always welcome at your club when she was ready! Now I look at an athlete who still continues to grow and has turned into a great Leader to her teammates. With that being said I would like to tell you Mackenzie has been named one of the Captains of her team! She attributes all her success to SSDC Coaches, so much so that she has held onto her SSDC Shammy all these years.
At the age of 8, my daughter Brenna started diving. Immediately, SSDC staff and teammates welcomed us into their community and have guided Brenna through this wonderful journey. She has had many challenges and much success.
"She has had many challenges and much success."
SSDC Coaches help their divers prepare for dives mentally and physically. They manage their concerns and help them through their training to help them achieve their goals which they, themselves, didn't think possible. Brenna has learned so much more than just diving from SSDC. She has learned about sportsmanship, friendship, dedication, strength, failure, trust, and teamwork. The training at SSDC will prepare her for her future endeavors.

Finding SSDC was momentous and we couldn’t be more grateful.
My daughter Olivia, at age 10, was recovering from a gymnastics related back injury and looking to pursue another avenue of competitive sports. We knew SSDC was something very special from the moment she stepped on the 1 meter springboard for her evaluation.
"The journey, thus far, has truly been an amazing experience."
From just that brief encounter, we were already pretty convinced this was going to be a perfect fit. Now, 3 years later, at age 13, I couldn’t have EVEN imagined the places SSDC would take her. The journey, thus far, has truly been an amazing experience. With the extraordinary, tireless guidance and support of her coaches and the unwavering love and support from her teammates, Olivia has been able to challenge herself in inexplicable ways both mentally and physically.
The challenges she has encountered and overcome in the sport of diving have given Olivia an amazing sense of accomplishment that extends well beyond the sport itself. The perseverance demonstrated by all the SSDC athletes is a direct testament to the club and it’s coaches. We are truly blessed to be a part this club and couldn’t be more excited to see where this journey will take her.” #thefutureisbright #loveourSSDCfamily
