Do not let this happen in your state. Administrators changed the fabric of sport without consulting a single coach!

Evil doings:

  • Reasons for the change shifted in the wind. The reasons why just didn't add up. And when those objections were overcome, the reasons changed.
  • No swim nor dive coach was consulted before the change was made.
  • No swim committee was consulted before the change was made. It was a complete blindsided move.
  • Another state went to a 6-dive championship, so it was said. But, that is NOT the case when investigated.
  • With the change, divers in PA won't be able to dive in the state meet and have their performance count for All-American honors.
  • College coaches want to see 11-dive lists for considerations to try-out for the team.
  • A PIAA Board Meeting was held, and public comment from the dive coaches was not permitted.
