DEDICATED TO THE ADVANCEMENT OF SPRINGBOARD DIVING IN ILLINOIS



CLOE PACE 2018


The Academy is a year round team program that competes on the Local, Regional, National and sometimes International level. We are members of both United States Diving (USD) and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).

The Academy also has a beginner and intermediate lesson program with sessions throughout the year.

Home pool for us is Neuqua Valley High School at 2360 95th St. in Naperville, IL.

There are 2 - 1 meter model 'B' diving boards in a separate well.

COACH PETIT'S PHILOSOPHY 

The DDA exists on the philosophy that one can accomplish anything in this world-----nothing is impossible!
 
We are not just about 'diving', but learning life lessons through hard work, goal setting and being honest about who we are and how we treat our teammates and other athletes.
 
In our program our divers will become physically & mentally stronger, overcome fear, and learn how to manage their time. Our underlying goal is to always try to help kids to exceed what they believe are their limitations.
 
Therefore, divers will always hear me say----"The only limitations in this world are the ones you put on yourself".
 
IF YOU DON'T PLANT THE SEED, THE TREE WILL NOT GROW
THE DDA ALWAYS PLANTS THE SEED


"I can't" is not spoken here, for it is simply untrue!
 
Because our Coaches, Divers and Parents alike are all committed to a shared common goal----we are a family, not just a team! What better to take away from this thing called the DDA than life long friendships!!
