While we continue to search for a new home for our diving practices, we encourage our members, and anyone else interested in diving in the local area, to practice with alternative diving programs in the New York City Tri-State Metropolitan Area. We have confirmed that two active diving programs in the 5 boroughs are open to the public:
- New York Diving Club at Fordham University (Rose Hill (Bronx) Campus): New York Diving Club, run by former Chinese Olympic Diving Coach Zhihua Hu (now Fordham University’s Head Diving Coach), is a USA Diving/AAU Diving program open to all ages, including youth (under the age of 18). For more information, visit New York Diving Club’s website at: www.nydiving.com
- Rip City Diving Club at Columbia University (Morningside Heights (Manhattan) Campus): Rip City Diving, run by Olympic Silver-Medalist Scott Donie (now Columbia University’s Head Diving Coach), is an AAU Diving program open to all ages, including youth (under the age of 18). For more information, contact Rip City Diving by e-mail (they do not have a website) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are other alternative diving programs throughout the metro area, such as the youth diving program at Asphalt Green, which is only open to youth (under the age of 18). You can search for other diving clubs through USA Diving and the AAU Diving.
