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. In a non-COVID year, there are 3 Friday evening dive meets held in July, ending with the All City Dive Meet on August 1.

2021 Registration Opens April 21

Kate has a background as a gymnast, where she competed for 11 years, but later applied her skills to diving. She dove for her high school, Seattle Prep, where she placed 16th at the 2018 WIAA State Championships, and has spent the past three summers diving for Arbor Heights, placing 2nd at All City in 2019.

Kate recently finished her second year at Loyola Marymount University where she is pursuing a double major in Psychology and Spanish. Kate has been a gymnastics coach at her old club gym for the past two years and is excited to begin her second year coaching at the Arb and her first year as Head Dive Coach!
