Private Lessons

Want to get an edge on the competition? Private lessons are available to all athletes (club and non-club members) and all levels of ability. Private lessons are the best opportunity for your child to work more closely with our coaches, and focus on a particular dive or skill set. We will provide specific, relevant instruction, and actionable feedback to help your diver progress!

Blue Wave Programs

Lessons Program

The Blue Wave Diving Lessons Program is for all levels of divers! We have a lessons program for beginner to intermediate-level divers and a program for advanced to elite-level divers.  This program is perfect for high school divers looking for a little extra help before or during their high school season or for divers who can't attend regular lessons with Blue Wave Diving. Divers in this program will attend regularly scheduled lessons and will also have access to all the diving equipment available in our other programs, including our dry-land facility. Divers wishing to purchase 5 or 10 lessons in advance will receive a discount. We also offer cash discounts.

All divers in our program must register with Blue Wave Diving and the Amateur Athletic Union to participate.

This level will progress to learning the basic dives in all directions. Divers from this program may advance to the Rogues program and compete in FINA competition-level events when they have met the competition requirements for their age group.
