Summer 2024 Kentucky Diving Personalized Skills Camp

The Kentucky Diving Personalized Skills Camp is back for the 2024 Summer!  Our camp will be personalized utilizing input from the parent, diver, and (if available), the diver’s home coach to identify primary learning goals for the camp.  Once the primary goals are identified we will build a lesson plan for the 3 days to maximize learning of those specific skills!
