Summer League Diving

The Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area has been a hot-bed of diving talent for decades. Some of the top divers in the United States - and ultimately the world, began their diving careers at a local summer swim club.

Divers such as World Champions Pat Evans (Eastgate Swim Club, 1996 Olympian Becky Ruehl (Five Seasons C.C.), National Junior Olympic, High School State, and NCAA Champion Dean Panaro (Reading Aquatic Club), Junior World, NCAA and Senior National Champion Kim Fugett, National Junior Olympic and Senior National Champion Lori Rizzuto (Blue Ash YMCA), Senior National Champion Angie Trostel (Oxford Swim Club), 1980 Olympian Barbie Weinstein (Jewish Community Center), Junior World and Senior National Champion Mike Gruber (Indian Hill Club) began their careers in summer league diving.

The history is long, the tradition is deep, and the memories and friendships created last forever. In the Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area, there are at least SIX leagues encompassing nearly 50 different swim clubs and more than 1500 divers.

The Summer League Swimming and Diving Season begins in early June and runs until the end of July. Diving meets take place on weekdays in the late afternoon or early evening, and while most diving teams practice in the mornings, many do practice in the evenings. The majority of summer league diving in our area takes place on the one-meter springboard, but some leagues (NKSL and Country Club League) sponsor three-meter diving as well. The teams have dual meets – usually once a week, and the season ends with a League Champ Meet.

If your club is hosting a Summer League Champ Meet and need help finding quality judges or a referee for your event -- CONTACT US -- WE ARE HERE TO HELP!! We can provide a list of names and phone numbers for local divers and coaches, or people knowledgeable about the sport of diving who have experience as diving judges and / or referees.

Typically, a stipend or honorarium is paid to these individuals for judging or refereeing your meet, and they are usually provided with food and drink passes, or access to your hospitality room throughout the meet.

If you are interested in having you name and contact information added to our list of possible diving judges and / or referee services, please send us a note as well.
