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.

Meet Our 2023 Coaches
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!
