Diving | Semester 2 2022 (Year 2 to Year 12)


Diving is the sport of jumping or falling into water from a platform or springboard, usually while performing acrobatics. Diving is an internationally recognised sport that is part of the Olympic Games.


MLC School Diving is constantly sourcing eligible competitions for the squad to enter. Divers enter competitions under their own discretion and must complete an annual registration individually with NSW Diving.

Divers must then enter the competition individually under the MLC School Banner, but again, at their own discretion.

Divers and their families will be notified of eligible competitions via email from the Sports Department or via their coaches.


$400.00 per diver for the semester.

A NON-REFUNDABLE fee of not more than $400.00 is charged and includes registration, insurance, team equipment and coaching fees.

Terms and Conditions

  • I understand the number of teams/divers MLC School enters into a competition is usually determined prior to the trial process. For this reason, it is not always possible to accommodate students if they miss the registration window.
  • I understand that squads will be selected based on ability and not for transport or social reasons.
  • I understand my daughter will need to attend ONE training session per week.
  • I understand the season runs from Tuesday 19 July to Friday 8 December 2022.
  • I understand that the registration fee is non-refundable.

Our divers train year-round during term time. Registrations are taken for each semester and students have to train at least once a week. Two training sessions have been arranged for the Diving Squad at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre (SOPAC) per term, (as per SOPAC availability and allowances). These are optional and for the benefit of divers of all abilities.

It is expected that students are punctual and dressed appropriately. Students may attend one or all of the training sessions provided at school for their age group.

On the rare occasions that it may be necessary for a diver to miss training or a competition:

  • If the inability to attend is known in advance – a written explanation (email) from the player’s parent/carer is to be given to the coach in advance. This notice should be given as early as possible.
  • If the player is absent from school on the day of training or on competition day – the player’s parent/carer is asked to advise the coach and Sports Department of their daughter’s absence from training or the game.


Continued failure to attend training or competitions without a timely written explanation is unacceptable and may jeopardise the diver’s continued involvement in sport.

A member of the Sports Department will contact Parents/carers of students whose non-attendance at training is not notified in the correct manner.


Our main form of communication with the divers and their parents is via email and occasionally text messages. Please ensure you regularly check emails to ensure you are well informed regarding Diving in 2022. The Sports Update in Audacia, the weekly newsletter also contains important information. This newsletter is sent every Friday afternoon during term time.
