You may have seen them training in the Aquatics Centre in the evenings. This dedicated group of athletes and coaches (not to mention parents) make up our CGC Diving Club and continue to grow stronger everyday with great results. Most recently they competed at the Atlantic Diving Championships where CGC established that not only does our team have the most fun, we are also quickly becoming a diving force to be reckoned with.

Note from Head Coach, Amanda Layton-Malone:
I am very proud of our performance at the recent Atlantic Championships. We achieved many medals and placements that were well deserved. Each diver represented the Canada Games Centre with integrity, pride, and confidence. We have certainly made our mark as one of Nova Scotia’s strong diving clubs. I look forward to the next event, the New Brunswick Diving Championships, that will be held at the end of June. Wish our divers good luck when you see them on the pool deck!
Special thanks to Alan Song, one of our wonderful diving parents, for capturing those photos.
