The same cancellations apply for the Armada Cup weekend starting the 21st February. All Dive 1-4 sessions and Weeny and Talent squad sessions are also cancelled from 21-24 February.
The March DD’s will be adjusted. No make-up sessions are available due to Half term being so full already!
As you may all know, the tickets for the British Championships in Plymouth on 8-10 February have been selling fast and some sessions are already sold out.
For people scanning the Ticketmaster website, there has been some confusion over any availability. Just to confirm, IF there are any tickets left they will be selling them on the door but this won’t be known until that time.
Tickets are NOT available from the Life Centre before this time.
The dates for the above events are as follows:
National Skills 4-6 May – Plymouth
National A Groups 11-14 July – Sheffield.
Both competitions are by invitation only and will involve divers from Novice, D, B and Age Group Squads.
We will be looking for volunteers for both events…. marshals and recorders for Skills and Chaperones and Drivers for NAGS.
The British Diving Championships are in town on the weekend of the 8-10 February and we need small people and glamorous girlies to carry medals/flowers and flags.
If you are 5-8 years boy or girl divers, or 14-18 Girl Diver (sorry boys!) we need you for the parades. Uniform will be provided.
The first one will be Friday after school and then Saturday and Sunday.
To give lots of people a chance to take part, we’d need you to sign up for at least one session only and we’ll contact you if we need you for more!
Then you get the chance to rub shoulders with the Olympic team and Junior National Team!!
We’re very sorry, but parents will have to apply on Ticketmaster for tickets to watch or contact me to volunteer themselves for a job also!
For general information, we are not selling the tickets but they should be on sale soon on Ticketmaster!
First come, first served!

Plymouth Diving recently returned from the Luton Kingfisher Challange 2012 in the brand new Luton 10 metre facility. The programme in Luton is being run by former Plymouth diver, Harry Glover – well done Harry!
The Challenge is a fun competition which runs regular events but also a Pairs Challenge where two divers, one male, one female, one over 15 aqn done under – join together performing three dives each in an eliminator.
The pairs continue through the rounds until they are knocked out – Plymouth dynamic duo – Matthew Dixon and Francesca del Celo finished in third place and picked up some prize money for their efforts as well!
Other great results included two individusal golds for Matthew in Boys 14-15 age group (he’s still 12!), a gold for Shanice Lobb in the girls 14-15 platform event plus a bronze in the 3 metre, two bronzes for Danny Bates in the boys 16+ category, two bronzes for Orla Lynch in the 10/11 category (she’s still 7!) and two bronzes for Aidan Heslop in the boys 10/11 category.
Lots more divers made finals – Evangeline Piper, Bethany Pulleyblank, Ben Bluett, Noah Gargett, Alex Kostov, Ollie Piper and Ashley Hendrick.
