TNYA began its diving program in spring 2011, and has competed with great success at the IGLA and Gay Games competitions around the world thereafter. Each workout includes a 30-minute warm-up to prevent injury and increase flexibility, and 90 minutes on the boards. We currently train on 1- and 3-meter springboards, working with each diver to build on their strengths, achieve new skills and increase their self-confidence. (The gigantic platforms you see us using in the pictures above are not 3-meter springboards. That’s us having fun at IGLA in Hawai’i, in the summer of 2011.)

Our team is a healthy mix of all skill levels, from raw beginners to former Division I competitors, and we are a recognized USA Diving club. Nobody is ever obliged to enter competitions if they’re not interested: we welcome any adult with interest and determination, regardless of skill level, to join us on the boards. (If you’re looking for a youth program, we have a few suggestions.)

For details on when and where we practice, see the workout schedule. Cost of workouts falls under our common fee structure.

Ready to sign up? For safety’s sake, we need you to fill out a few forms first. Here’s how to do it.

TNYA’s diving coach, Croft Vaughn, can’t wait to get you on the boards! If you have any questions about our program, we encourage you to contact us at
