Talent Games 2021

Day 1

Massive well done to our 6 ADC divers competing in the Talent Games event in Leeds this weekend. This is a 2 day competition that tests physical and technical skills both in and out of the pool.

Today we had the dryland events. There were a number of physical skills testing their strength, flexibilty, coordination and technical competencies. The divers performed 5 skills on the dryboards, a gymnastic style floor routine, drills, and strength and conditioning skills including pike ups, chin ups, sprints, long jumps, and handstand holds.

Anna and Kim were so impressed with the quality and determination that all 6 divers showed throughout the day and they should all be extremely proud of themselves

The divers had the afternoon off and the coaches and chaperones thought they earned a well deserved trip to the cinema in the afternoon to see the latest marvel movie before dinner.


Day 2

Today's events at Talent Games took place in the pool, and the divers competed a series of required dives across 1m, 3m platform, and 3m line ups.

The 6 divers worked really hard to show good form, control, drills and entries. Just being selected to compete at this event is a massive achievement in itself.
