Warren Boys diving is looking for athletes who can flip and twist off the diving board! If this sounds fun or if you have any level of gymnastics or tumbling experience, diving is the sport for you! Diving is part of the swim team and divers compete at either JV or the varsity level. No experience is necessary, just a great attitude and a willingness to learn and try new dives! Questions? Contact Coach Lobitz. (Lobitz)
