We are pleased to have Max Powell back as our assistant dive coach for the fourth consecutive year. Max has been a member of the dive team since 2008, and has accumulated an impressive record of achievement in the sport over the years. Max currently holds the Intermediate Boys pool record score. In the NVSL, Max has placed 4th or better in the All-Stars five times and won the Wally Martin Three Meter Meet in 2016. Max is an accomplished competitor in USA Diving and a three-time Virginia High School State finalist. Last week, Max’s selection as an All-American high school diver is a well-deserved tribute to many years of continuous dedication to the sport. On top of his considerable dive knowledge and experience, Max brings a unique ability to relate to kids, and is passionate about making diving fun.
