Middle School Diving

My name is Amy Johnson, and I am the dive coach for both Woodside and Summit.  My email is bytheseaasj@yahoo.com and cell is 260-414-6856.  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I have been coaching dive for 6 years.  I am an elementary PE teacher in Fort Wayne Community Schools at Brentwood. 

Dive practice is from 4:15 to 5:30.  This time will overlap with High School and Club Dive.  Middle school will arrive and take 3 blue mats into the hallway.  We will stretch, take attendance, go over the workout for the day, and return the mats at 4:30 to get in the water for an hour.  Club divers will arrive and stretch while we are in the water. Club divers will stay and join Club until 6:30. 

There are 16 Practice days.  Both teams practice at the same time on the same boards. 

There will be NO Practice on the following dates:      January 31 & February 5, 6, 7, 14, 21, 25

If there is a Meet, Middle school will not practice and Club kids will go the club practice.  This would a good time to check out an intro to dive through IISD (Indiana International School of Diving).

Conference qualifications are a 4 step hurdle and 6 different dives.  There are only 3 divers entered for each team for conference.

We will have 3 days of tryouts starting Tuesday, January 21, 2020.   I will let the divers know they have made the team on Thursday, Jan. 23 after practice.

Please arrive on time to pick up your diver after practice.  I will not leave until all athletes have been picked up and are accounted for. 

I am excited for our season and am ready to get started!   We are going to have a lot of fun!

Thank you,

Amy Johnson
