WELCOME TO RC FINS DIVING!
The Fins Dive Team is a fun and active group of kids who love to dive! Any child member age 6-18 of Rock Creek Pool may join the dive team if they can swim one length of the pool and tread water for one minute in the deep end. The dive team welcomes children who have never tried diving before as well as those who have been on the team for years!
Rock Creek Pool is in Division I of the Montgomery County Diving League (MCDL). Other pools in our division include Merrimack Park, Seven Locks, North Chevy Chase, Old Georgetown and Tanterra.
Everything you need to know about the dive team is now at our new website.
