Divers who have completed the Learn-to-Dive programme move on to the competitive programme to learn advanced skills for future competitive diving.
As competitive diving is the primary goal, and there is a focus on building core strength, flexibility and motor skill movements. This program is more structured and advanced than the LTD programme.
Basic skills are taught in great detail, with the coaches drilling the basics over and over until the desired movement is accomplished in the skill. Much emphasis is on Dryland training, building the proper motor skills, core, stability and strength necessary to move properly in the air and water. Further skill advancement is attempted only when the a level of competency is attained in basic movements.
The competitive training sessions are held up to 4 times a week at Toa Payoh Swimming Complex.
