DH Dive Week 1 is here!

Welcome to Week 1

Week one is finally here and we can’t wait to get started tomorrow night at 7:00! We have some important details to cover. Starting next week, we will send a weekly email on Mondays with updates.

Attached is a printable calendar with all the important dates in one place. We sometimes make adjustments to it, so the latest version can be found on the right-hand of the home page of the website, called “2021 Printable Calendar”.

Practice Schedule

For the first few weeks through June 18th, practices are in the evenings Monday through Thursday. Please come to whichever one-hour practice suits you best (7:00, 8:00, or 9:00). We expect that adding the additional third hour of practice, we can have practice while following COVID capacity and distancing requirements.

Send extra towels and a robe (if desired) with your diver. It can get chilly as the sun sets.

There will be no practice on Monday, May 31.

Coaches

We are thrilled to have a great group of former experienced DH divers returning to coach this year. Read more about Lily, Grace, Ellie & “The Lukes” on the Swimtopia website under “Dive Coaches”. While you are on Swimtopia feel free to let your kids walk through memory lane by watching the previous years’ end of the season videos – so much fun has been had down at our beloved dive well!

COVID protocols

We covered this in the last message, but as another reminder, please make sure your child comes wearing a mask and in a bathing suit ready to go. The bathrooms are for emergencies only, not for changing.

To enter, please use the sidewalk that runs along the left side of the Community House and the pool to locate the side entrance gate near the “tank” pool. Parents can drop off their kids. Parents are not allowed in the pool area but they are welcome to bring their own fold up outdoor chair and sit on the hilly area by the side gate while practice is taking place.

A coach will greet arrivals and ask them COVID screening questions. The divers then should place their dive bags and flipflops along the gate to the left side of the deck. The coaches will then lead them through the dive station rotations. Divers will exit through the same gate they entered when practice is finished.

Inclement Weather

We can usually practice in rain, but not if there is thunder. Please subscribe to the Dive Team text alerts by texting DHDIVE to 84483. Note that this is different from the general pool system and swim team system. This is for dive team alerts only. We will use this throughout the season to keep you notified on the status of practices and meets. Please be patient as the “call” to cancel or delay is made. It will usually be made 30 minutes prior to practice.

Spirit Wear

The spirit wear order has been placed and all items should be arriving before the first meet. If you would like the DH team suit, visit SportFair on Lee Highway and be sure to ask for the Dominion Hills dive team suit, as the swim team opted for a different one. As a reminder, the suits are NOT required.

That’s it for this week, please don’t forget that the latest info will be posted on the website at https://dhwarriorsdive.swimtopia.com. And as always, please let us know if you have any questions.

Angela and Thomas
