Mill Creek Towne Pool is proud to be the home of the Marlin Dive Team. The Marlins offer a level of competition for all abilities for children ages 5-18.
The team is coached by Head Coach Cassie Graham and Assistant Coach Blake Posada. Cassie is in her 2nd season as the Marlins Dive Coach and Blake is a lifeguard at MCT. Cassie is an accomplished diver at the high school level and club level while Blake has dived for the MCT Marlins and Magruder Colonels. Click here to view Cassie and Blake’s complete bios.
The Marlins compete in The Montgomery County Dive League (MCDL). The MCDL Mission is to promote the safety, fun, and learning of the sport of Springboard Diving through instructional practice and age-level competition. In MCDL, divers compete against other children of the same age in several categories, divided by boys and girls: 8 & Under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18. The divers learn the basic front and back jumps and dives, and then more complicated somersault, reverse, inward and twisting dives. Points are awarded to the teams for their first-, second-,and third- place finishes within each age group.
The dive team season runs from the Tuesday after Memorial Day until late July. Meets are held Sunday afternoons @ 4:00 PM. Team members can choose between morning and evening practice times. Meet and practice schedules can be found on the Marlins Swim and Dive Website. Click Here to go to the Marlins Swim and Dive Website.
