Welcome to the 2021 NSJ Dive Season!

While things will be a little bit different than previous years due to Covid precautions, we are excited to be able to have a competition season this year! The Central Maryland Diving League (CMDL) and its member pools have worked hard to put together a workable schedule and we are really looking forward to being back at the pool and on the boards! The CMDL Board, together with the Dive Directors, has also put together Covid guidelines that the CMDL and each pool will be following for this competition season. If you have any questions about safety, precautions, or what we will be doing to keep divers and spectators safe, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Directors.

We anticipate that this will be another great year of diving, competition, and fun times with the NSJ community. 

The NSJ Dive Team encourages fun, safety and courage. Divers compete on an age-based system with kids of all ability levels. The older divers provide great role models while younger divers provide energy and excitement. The large number of new and experienced divers provides a fun environment where all divers are continuously learning and pushing each other to new levels. In addition, these young athletes are guaranteed to build courage as they stand alone atop the diving board, not to mention the opportunity to learn some new, cool pool tricks!

The NSJ Dive Team Directors, Charity LaGow and BreeAnne Chadwick, are excited for another great dive season! There are lots of fun activities planned! If you have any questions, please contact:
• Charity LaGow (charitylagow@me.com)
• BreeAnne Chadwick (breeanne.ch@gmail.com)
