We're all looking forward to a fun season this summer. Please take a few minutes of your time to review the following. 

Registration - For those doing dive only, use this registration form.  Turn the form into one of the Team Reps at the first practice which will be after Memorial Day.  A Team Rep will be at most evening practices.  If you are doing both Greenbriar swim and dive this year, sign up and pay online with the swim team.

Please note that the dive team suit is different from the swim team suit and is not included in the registration fees for dive team. This is the link to purchase the dive team suit https://shopumall.com/. On the link go to Water Sports, Team Pages, and then select Greenbriar Dive for specifics on purchasing the dive team suit. Dive team suits are not required for meets, but most divers prefer to have the team suit.

Volunteering - The team depends on the help of the divers and the parents to ensure the meets go well. There are lots of opportunities to help out. There will be sign-ups for each meet. Here's a list of the meet volunteer opportunities:

-Announcing - For this position the volunteer will announce the diver name, the dive, and the degree of difficulty (all on the sheet in front of you), then pass the sheet to the table, and read the scores as they come up. And of course, you get to call for quiet umpteen times per meet!

-Table workers - Table workers record the scores read by the announcer, cross-check with a worker from the other team, and do the math for the final score. We need two table workers for each meet.

-Judging - Volunteers get the best seat in the house and can be comfortable knowing that your score is one of five - and if you're the highest or lowest it's thrown out anyway! You need to attend an NVSL clinic (three hours or so) to be a judge. This is a great position to get a much better understanding of what the sport is all about.

-Fundraising -  You can:
----Run our Dolphin Diner at home meets. This year we have two, see the meet schedule above. We will also have other fundraising opportunites such as bake sales and Dolphin Diner nights at the night pool.
