Swimming and Diving, boys
The Centennial Swimming and Diving team is a competitive swimming and diving program. Athletes are taught the basics of competitive swimming or diving. At the same time, the coaches strive to make swimming and diving fun.
The student athletes are given the opportunity to grow as individuals and members of a team, by setting and achieving personal goals. The coaches work with the athletes to help develop well-rounded individuals who enjoy the water and the activities associated with competitive swimming and diving. As the athletes develop, the coaching staff helps each athlete compete at their highest possible level.
The key to success in any endeavor is to practice the skills and to practice the skills consistently. All students are expected to attend all practices scheduled for their group. Once all of the paperwork is completed and on file with the school the athlete will bring the slip showing their eligibility to practice to the coaching staff. From that point until the last meet of the season for that Individual the athlete is expected to participate in all practices. Athletes with five unexcused or any combination of excused and unexcused absences that total ten will be terminated from the team.
The divers all work together to improve their diving skills. They learn how to put together six-dive and eleven-dive lists. As their Skills develop, the athletes are given the opportunity to compete using their six or eleven-dive list. Divers who are still developing a six-dive list are given opportunities during meets to perform some of the dives they have learned in an exhibition capacity.
