Dive Certification

While the depth of our pool does not allow for dive starts, we may swim against teams that do. If your child wishes to start from a diving position at these pools, your child will need to be dive certified.  This is a Cherokee County Board of Health requirement.  

If you wish for your child to be dive certified, please visit the Cherokee County Aquatics Center website and click the Summer Swim Team Dive Certification and Clinics link.

Dive Certification is a one-time event. Once dive certified, always dive certified.

Important:  We are required to keep records of swimmers who are dive certified.  If your child was certified through an organization, other than the Cherokee Recreation and Parks Department, then you must provide us with a copy of your dive certification.  

Diving at meets:  For meets where diving is allowed, mark a “D” on the shoulder of those swimmers who are certified to dive. You will be notified if a meet is held at a pool that allows diving.

Five year olds are not allowed to dive and do not need to be dive certified.

*** For the 2019 season, all of our away meets are at pools that allow dive starts.***
