Who is Steve Voellmecke?

Steve Voellmecke was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and has been involved with the sport of diving for nearly 35 years – first as a diver, now as a coach, judge and volunteer. Steve graduated from Moeller High School in 1984 and went on to earn his degree in Business Management from Xavier University in 1988. He was a four-year member of the XU Swimming and Diving Team and was team captain his senior year.

Steve is a Life Member of USA Diving; a Trustee of the United States Diving Foundation; Treasurer of The United States Professional Diving Coaches Association and is on the Executive Board for the ambitious Aquatic Training Center project. He was USA Team Leader for the 2000 FINA World Cup in Sydney, Australia and the 1996 Can-Am-Mex Junior Olympic International Meet in Winnipeg, Canada, and was chosen “first alternate” to be the USA Diving Team Leader for the 2000 Olympic Games. As the CO-Meet Director for the 1996 U.S. National Diving Championships, he helped produce the memorable and highly successful event held at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

In 1998, Steve was presented with the prestigious "WHOSAM" Award given annually to the Diving Coach who "demonstrates commitment to excellence and dedication to the highest physical, mental and spiritual ideals." This award is presented by Dr. Sammy Lee M.D. – 1948 and 1952 Olympic Gold Medalist -- and the person responsible for introducing "The Sammy” Sport Towel to the diving world!

A highly respected diving judge, Steve is F.I.N.A. (international) certified and was the only judge selected to judge both the 2008 AND 2012 United States Olympic Diving Trials. He has judged the NCAA Championships from 2007 – 2014, as well as multiple international diving competitions and Collegiate Conference Championships, including the Big 10, SEC and PAC-12 championships. In addition, Steve has served as referee and judge at countless Summer League Diving Meets in the Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area over the past 30 years.

Although Steve has coached divers at the State, National and International Levels, his first love is teaching diving at the Grassroots Level. He has coached the summer diving team at The Indian Hill Club since 1985 and helped to design the diving well at their spectacular pool built in 2008.

Steve is the owner and President of Springboards and More (A Division of DIVE Cincinnati, Inc.) – the perennial largest Dealer of Duraflex Diving Equipment in the United States and the Preferred Equipment Supplier to USA Diving.

He currently lives in Loveland, Ohio with twins Aidan and Simone – his very active and involved son and daughter who were born on Valentine’s Day 2001. The other member of the Voellmecke Family is “Pennie Lane” – a Yellow Labrador Retriever who will do just about anything for a Peanut Butter-filled Kong!
