The sport of diving has grown in popularity in recent years. The thrill of the height, and the excitement of flying in the air has brought kids together – locally and nationally. The Forest City Diving Club (FCDC) has been ranked one of the top diving clubs in Ontario. This year, summer Senior Nationals was a big success for four of our athletes, each of whom placed top 12 in the country. Katelyn Fung finished 4th on 1M, 10th on 3M, and 12th on Platform, while Joshua Inglis placed 4th on 1M and 6th on 3M, and Faith Zacharias placed 7th on 1M.
Continuing with the club’s ongoing success and its dedication to the sport, FCDC in July is sending four athletes to the Jr. Elite Nationals in Montreal, Que (Joshua Inglis, Camryn Hughes, Nathan Marshall, and Katelyn Fung), as well as four athletes to the Jr. Development Nationals in Regina, SK (Nigel Chambers, Abbigail Haygarth, Alexa Fung, and Daria Chambers). Each of these athletes has worked hard and is passionate about their sport as they look to take it to the next level. FCDC is very proud of their achievements and the support of their coaches.
Summer Camp is in full swing. We have two energized coaches who provide two sessions daily of dryland and diving instructions to kids aged 6 and up. In between pool time, kids are engaged in fun activities that keep them staying active the whole day. And don’t forget about Pizza Friday! Sessions run from July 8 to August 23. Sign up today!
