It is with great pride I introduce our world class diving program to Long Island. As the owner & head coach of High Dive Champions I devote everyday to teaching and coaching diving in a very positive environment.  As a diver,  I was coached by two Olympic Coaches over the course of eight years, Dick Kimball and Ron O'Brien.  The technical expertise gained and the respect for a professionally run program is something I learned and wanted to replicate. Today High Dive Champions is one of the leading U.S. Diving Teams for developing talent. We have a record of over 15 years of developing Regional Champions, National Champions, All Americans and more. Now we are bringing our program to the World Class Training Facility at Eisenhower Park.
