Hello Divers, Coaches and Parents! 

Hope you’re staying cool this summer. The AAU Nationals were held in Noblesville, IN and as far as we know, there were no Covid results associated with the event.  Congratulations to all who were able to participate and we wish you continued success.

The Fall should bring few changes to our sport.  The City of Phoenix will not be opening their pools in 2020.  The Flagstaff area hopes to open later in September or early October if all state requirements are met. The Arizona Interscholastic Association has opened Fall sport competitions, but leaves the final requirements up to each school and district.  No word from the Tucson families, so information to share with you from UofA.

At this time, there are no AAU meets scheduled in Arizona and there is no plan for the Annual Awards Luncheon for 2020.  Yes, we are living in trying times, but there will be brighter days ahead.  Let’s work together, stay safe and support each other.  We can get back to the “normal” strategies of practices and competitions sooner if we remain vigilant and keep complying with scientific recommendations as our guidelines.

I will be contacting the coaches if anything changes as that is the most efficient means of communication.  

See you on the pool deck!
