Welcome to Dive Team

Welcome to the AHSTC Dive Team! The South Seattle Summer Dive League (SSSDL) was adopted in 2008. It was designed to introduce young people to dive and encourage their enjoyment of diving in a safe and positive environment. We invite members 5-18 years old to join the AHSTC dive team. All skill levels ranging from year-round club divers and brand-new divers are supported by our experienced coaching staff.

Spring dive practice is offered at the end of May a few days a week after school. We understand that school and extracurricular activities are still taking place, so this is an optional dive practice. Summer practice begins at the end of June through the end of July and are held daily Monday through Friday mornings. There are three Friday evening dive meets held in July, ending with the All City Dive Meet.

2024 Dive Registration

All skill levels are welcome, but must be willing to jump off the diving board and able to swim unaccompanied to the side of the pool.
Team registration is required prior to practice. If you have questions, contact ah-dive@ahstc.com.
*Registration/refund deadline is June 22. Please note our refund policy.

Meet Our 2023 Coaches

Kelly Robertson


For those of you that don’t know me, My name is Kelly McCormick Robertson. I’ve been involved with the sport of diving since I could walk. I started gymnastics when I was 8 and made the switch to diving when I was 14. I was lucky enough to compete on the world stage. I’m most proud of the silver and bronze medals I was  awarded in the 1984-1988 Olympic Games.
I’m really excited to get back to the Arb this year! It’s a special place and the otters are awesome! I look forward to seeing everyone in May!!

Kate Leahy


A member since 2004, Kate has spent many summers at the Arb on both the swim and dive teams. Kate has a background as a gymnast and competed for 11 years before transferring her skills to diving. She spent three summers diving for Arbor Heights, placing 2nd at All City in 2019, and competed for her high school, Seattle Prep, where she placed 16th at the 2018 WIAA State Championships. 

Kate graduated from Loyola Marymount University this past December with a double major in Psychology and Spanish. She has helped coach and organize the dive team for the past 3 summers and is thrilled to return for another great season alongside Coach Kelly!
