Nationals 2017 is in the bags and we have two new medal holders AND two new Saskatchewan record holders. Kelsey Clairmont of Regina Diving Club won bronze in Group C 3m at Jr. Development Nationals and broke her own record which she had set earlier in the year. Rylan Wiens of Saskatoon Diving Club took the silver medal on Group B 3m at Jr. Elite Nationals and broke the record that had been set by Jamie Spilchak just last month at Manitoba Provincials. Congratulations Kelsey and Rylan!

Dive Sask believes that community is important – that friends you make as a diver, coach, official or volunteer can last throughout your lifetime and enrich your life. To help you connect with old friends, we have created a Dive Sask Alumni Facebook Group and will be hosting some upcoming events and play days. The first event will be held on June 30th, from 5-7 pm at the Shaw Centre in Saskatoon. We will have a killer ab session, handstand contest, belly flop contest, and biggest d.d. dive. Warning – this WILL be posted on Social Media! Join in the activities or be a cheerleader from the deck. Message the Saskatoon Diving Club Facebook page if you can attend. Look for similar events in Regina and plan to attend the alumni get together at Senior Nationals in Saskatoon in January. In the meantime, start looking through old photos and post them on the Alumni Facebook page.
We have two new Provincial Records on Group E Platform. Lila Stewart broke her own record set earlier this year with a new score of 288.00. Newcomer Freddie Moffatt broke Alexander Potts record with a new score of 238.00. Congratulations!

The battle for the final spot on the Women’s Canada Games Team was hard fought last weekend at the Toon Town Westerns in Saskatoon – and Joelle Gallais not only won a spot on the team but broke the record set in 2006 by Lindsay Hamilton. Check here to see the current Sask records waiting to be broken.
