I am excited to announce the registration and schedule for the 2017 Otter dive team! My name is Dave Kerr and I have taken over for Mark Allen as the Old Orchard Dive Team rep (thank you Mark for your years of service in this role). More importantly, our own Megan Miller will be returning as our dive coach. This is Megan’s 3rd year as our Dive Team coach and she will bring her energy and experience to the team.
REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE
Registration forms will be available at the front desk at the swim club. The fee for the year is $80 (diver only) or $40 (if your child is also on the swim team). All divers are required to carry AAU insurance before they may practice (no exceptions; South Jersey Diving Association rule). Information on obtaining the insurance may be found here: http://southjerseydiving.org/diver-info/aau-membershipinsurance/. The cost is $14.
