Trampoline and Dryland programs are designed for the benefit of the divers participating in either dryland alone or a combination of water and dryland training.
Dryland - At each practice, divers will be expected to participate in flexibility and strength training. These exercises are important to the muscular learning of the individual. The techniques used have been designed by some of the best coaches in the country and the world.
Trampoline - We use 2 forms of trampoline training
- Belted training
This technique uses an overhead spotting rig and waist-belts to allow the diver to practice their dives in a safe and highly repetitive environment. The coach is able to instruct the diver and have them repeat the skill quickly, making changes easier to remember. The belts allow the diver to make “rookie” mistakes without the fear of smacking the water, increasing confidence and creating muscular memory.
- Free training
Obviously, divers cannot all be in the belt at the
same time. For those who are waiting for their turn,
there are additional trampolines available for skills
training. The skills come from the gymnastics list
“101 trampoline skills without flipping”.
