About Us

Blue Wave Diving is a diving club created by Shawn Austin, a former competitive athlete who has been coaching diving since 2000. With our state-of-the-art facility at SUNY Geneseo, we make high-quality year-round training accessible to athletes in western New York as well as rural communities in the Finger Lakes region. Our sessions are small, so our athletes get a lot of repetition and individual attention. Our staff works closely with one another to build the best training program for each athlete. If you're interested in trying the sport of diving, preparing for your upcoming season, or would like to compete at the sport's top level, contact Blue Wave Diving for more information.


Prior to being Blue Wave Diving our club began as Finger Lakes Diving in 2000. In 2005 Club Director, Shawn Austin accepted a Technical Support position at SUNY Geneseo. Shortly after that Shawn became the Head Diving Coach for SUNY Geneseo and moved the club from Alfred University to SUNY Geneseo. The SUNY Geneseo Swimming and Diving team is known as Blue Wave. To go along with the spirit and tradition of the SUNY Geneseo swimming and diving team, Blue Wave Diving was founded in 2008. Even our logo was originally designed by a SUNY Geneseo Alumni Swimmer. Shawn modified the logo by adding a diver to the wave and there you have it... We are Blue Wave Diving!
