Coaches Needed

RDC is looking for new coaches. Our club has grown, our programs have expanded and we have a lot of new divers coming through, as well as divers returning to the club after being away for a while. At this stage we need casual coaches to fill in and also to take ownership of a few lessons regularly - both at MLC and at Aquanation. Our coaches work in a collaborative environment. If you would like to join our dynamic, progressive team, please call Avril on 0430 590 077

From Angus McLardie, Head Coach Age Nationals: Another year of age nationals comes to an end. What a big effort by our RDC team. Its Incredibly difficult to take all the hard work that they have put in for the last year and pull it all together for 1 week of diving. Congratulations to Corey Bruno, Sophia James, Billie Bennett, Jenna Healy, Anjali Jackson, Emily Foord, Piper Bennett and Olivia Roche on their performances over the week.

There were some great moments and some disappointments, but sometimes that's diving. Our divers take away many lessons from nationals that can't be taught anywhere but in the big events.

A Very special mention to Emily Foord who not only put on the best platform diving display of her life, but has been there for every diver, for every splat, missed entry, and failed dive with a big smile, a hug, and some kind words to encourage everyone to keep on trying because that's the only way to move on and do better next time.

Good Luck to all the RDC divers who are learning and improving in the next year to get the dives and the points for the qualifying scores!

A 2012 London Olympian who started diving at the age of 11 at Ringwood Diving Club. An all round sporty kid, Anabelle fell into diving and quickly climbed the ranks of the Junior Circuit.

Her breakthrough was winning two bronze medals at the 2008 World Junior championships in Germany. Since, she has represented Australia at 2 Commonwealth Games (winning two bronze medals), 3 World Cups (bronze) and 2 world championships. She has been on Diving Australia's National Squad for over 6 years, Annabelle competed at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, claiming a bronze medal in the 3m synchronised springboard event.

She went on to finish 11th in the final with compatriot Sharleen Stratton fifth and China’s Minxia Wu claiming gold.
