SUMMER DIVE 2017

Welcome Tuckahoe Flying Tigers!

 

The Tuckahoe Flying Tigers will compete in NVSL Dive Division 2 this summer.  We are counting on last year’s divers returning for another fun filled summer, and look forward to welcoming many newcomers to our team.  No experience is necessary – children ages 5-18 are welcome if they can jump off the board and swim to the side of the pool.  Our program, as well as the NVSL, emphasizes teaching children the proper technique for safe diving and a love for the sport.
