Coaches Report January 2018

The Corby Steel Diving Club (CSDC) participated at the Swim England TALENT GAMES

18th and 19th November 2017 at the prestigious John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds


The Talent Games is the mechanism for divers aged 11 years and under to compete across a broad spectrum of gym and pool based activities. It is a

national competition like no other and an exciting opportunity for young aspiring divers. 

In addition, the Talent Games is also the ‘Selection Event’ for the England Diving Team Z Squads.

We had only one competitor representing the CSDC and the city Corby and with only 9 years of age our little diver competed as a giant finishing in 4th place on the dry events and 1st place on the pool events placing Corby diving as one of the most successful programmes in the country and a great result for Corby diving.

We also finished the year competing at the English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) National Diving Championships in London Aquatic Centre Stratford December 10th 2017

5 divers representing the East Midlands Region finishing in 7th place overall.

I am looking forward for the challenges 2018 will bring our club is growing in numbers strengthening our position and development.

I would like to extend my gratitude to Corby council, the pool management, the club committee, parents and divers for your invaluable support.
