ABOUT

Charger Dive Club (CDC) is a dynamic new diving club in Southern California that draws youth divers from both Los Angeles and Orange Counties.  


CDC was founded by Director and Head Coach Eric Lesser whose lifelong passion for diving inspired him to give back to the sport by starting a club to help kids acquire the skills and confidence necessary to succeed at the Junior Olympic level and on into college.  


CDC’s home pool is on the Cypress College Campus in Cypress, CA.  The pool features two 1 meter springboards, a 3 meter springboard and a 5 meter platform.  CDC divers also have access to the Cypress College weight room and trainer and dryland facilities on the Cypress College Aquatic Center pool deck.

POOL PRACTICES

During pool practices, divers practice their dives in all directions on the 1 meter and 3 meter springboards as well as the 5 meter platform.

Pool practices begin with line up and entry drills.  Once warmed up, each diver works on their individual dive list.

DRYLAND TRAINING

Dryland Training helps divers advance divers' confidence and skills by focusing on components that are critical to every dive: hurdles, takeoffs and rotation.  Dryland equipment includes trampolines with harnesses and diving boards with harnesses over mats or a foam pit. 

Dryland Training takes place on the Cypress Aquatic Center Pool Deck.
