Drake Trophy 2019 Coach Report.

CSDC participated at the Drake Trophy & Swim England South West Regional Skills Plymouth on Saturday 11th of May 2019 as an alternative competition to get qualified for the Swim England National Skills Finals Plymouth 6th – 7th of July 2019.


Three divers represented CSDC and the East Midlands region on a one day competition which was a great, very well organized and with a fantastic result for our divers, Corby Steel Diving Club and the East Midlands Region.

Our divers scored high, smashing their own personal bests to qualify for the National Skills Finals 2019 with points to spare.

Two CSDC divers also stepped on to the podium winning 2 bronze medals, it was amazing to see one of our divers scoring 10’s in two of the dives during the event.

Overall a great result for Corby diving and congratulations to our divers for getting the qualification mark for the Swim England Nationals Skills Finals Plymouth 2019

In the mean time we will continue with quality dry & wet training and work hard to have a good competition at the National Skills Finals this year and to ensure more of our divers will achieve the qualification standards for next year.

As usual a massive thank you to the parents, club committee, pool management, divers and to the competition staff and volunteers thank you all for your support.


With Regards
Ricardo Gutiérrez
