The National Prep group is composed of divers who demonstrate they understand and embody the MHDC mission and goals, meet commitment level and who have achieved Junior Advanced skill proficiency and progression standards. National Prep athletes, as the name suggests, are being tracked towards qualifying for Nationals while using Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) as the basis for continued growth.
National Prep divers that meet the criteria for moving into the National Prep Advanced group will be extended an invitation. Athletes who do not acquire the predetermined set of skills, or chose not to accept the invite, will be given the option of training with the Varsity group, or pursuing other avenues outside the program.
Like all of our groups, National Prep divers utilize Dryland training and methods to maximize the experience and acquire skills in the appropriate progression and with the correct focus.
Commitment: This group practices on an annual training contract, running through August 31st of each year.
Practice Length: 2 hours per practice.
Payment: All payment for tuitions is billed using recurring billing via credit card. All tuitions are billed on the first of each month.
