Welcome to the 2024 Carderock Dive Team and Dive Program Page

Carderock Springs is looking forward to another great Dive season in 2024!  The Carderock Springs Dive programs provide a fun and safe environment for divers to learn and grow their diving skills.  The team has many skilled divers returning to the boards this year and look forward to welcoming new members to the team. No experience is needed to join the team!! Carderock Springs has the largest team in the league due to our expert coaching staff, enthusiastic divers, and spirited team atmosphere. Safety is our top priority and our experienced coaches will work with divers at weekly practices to ensure divers learn the mechanics of properly executing dives.  

This year, we are excited to offer two Dive options: 


This year, the Dive Team will be led by returning head Coach, Tynan O'Donoghue!!  The Dive team holds weekly practices to prepare for 5 Dive Meet competitions. Divers compete in their age group in 10 events. The five age groups for both girls and boys are: 

  • 8 & Under 
  • 9-10
  • 11-12 
  • 13-14 
  • 15-18 Meet 

Competitor Eligibility: Divers must be a members of the pool they represent in the dive competition.  

Group Determination: The diver’s age as of June 1 determines eligibility for a particular age group. For instance:

  • A diver whose birthday is June 1, and who becomes 13 on June 1, will compete in the 13-14 age group.
  • A diver whose birthday is May 31, and who becomes 13 on May 31, will compete in the 13-14 age group
  • A diver whose birthday is June 2, and who becomes 13 on June 2, will compete in the 11-12 age group. 

Carderock competes in the Montgomery County Dive League (MCDL), and we are in division III.  We compete this year against the following teams: 

III 1 Carderock Springs CS
2 River Falls RF
3 Potomac Woods PW
4 Mohican MO
5 Little Falls
6 Country Glen CG


This new program is geared toward divers who would like to develop dive skills but do NOT want to compete in weekly meets. This is a fun and safe way to learn how to execute dives without the pressure of completion. This class is perfect for beginning divers of all ages and all skill levels. Sienna Gala, will serve as the Head Coach for the Non-Competitive Dive Program, and instruction will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. There will be no practice on July 4.

All Ages 3:15-400 pm
