Countryside YMCA offers beginning and intermediate springboard diving instructions to youth and adults in learning competitive dives. From beginner competitive diving to more advanced springboard diving skills, we offer something for everyone.

Participants in intermediate springboard continue to learn springboard diving skills, safety, and beginner and intermediate competitive dives. Participants must have at least YMCA Stage 4 Stroke Introduction level swimming skills, be comfortable in deep water, and be able to swim 25 yards.
