Charger Dive Club (CDC) is a dynamic new diving club in Southern California that draws youth divers from Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside 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 trains out of two pools in Southern California:  Cypress College Aquatics Facility in Cypress, CA and the Riverside Aquatics Complex at Riverside City College.  The Cypress pool features two 1 meter springboards, a 3 meter springboard and a 5 meter platform.  The Riverside Aquatics Complex is an Olympic sized facility that has hosted major national diving championships, and includes four 1m springboards, four 3m springboards,  and a platform with 3m/5m/7.5m and 10m heights.  Both facilities feature a sparger system to safely learn new skills, dryland equipment with overhead spotting systems, and a fitness area for conditioning and weight training.

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

Dryland Training takes place on pool deck.  



Conditioning takes place immediately before pool practice and focuses on increasing cardio fitness and on strength training.  Conditioning takes place on the pool deck.
