Some of you may have never heard, but there’s a recruiting website available dedicated towards divers called Divers To College (https://www.DiversToCollege.com). This was started by world renowned Olympic Coach Dr. Ron O’Brien. At the heart of it is a questionnaire that determines a diver’s learning “bent” and it helps the diver match up to a coach’s “teaching” style. It’s a free service for high school aged kids whether they are in a club or not. The site offers opportunities for divers to share about themselves with coaches from around the country.
