Intrasquad & Invitational Meets
NSDC is planning on hosting another Invitational Meet at the end of the Fall 2017 Session. New information for fall invitational is now posted! While these invitational meets are not a requirement for divers, they are strongly recommended. For those new to the sport, they are a great introduction to a competitive environment and an opportunity to set goals for the end of the season and show off new skills and dives learned to family and friends. For those athletes wishing to participate in the USA Diving competition series, they are an opportunity to prepare for upcoming competitions and practice their lists. See below results from previous invitationals this year:
2017 Minnesota Diving Association Championships

USA Diving Competitions
Speaking of the USA Diving competition series, we also wanted to provide a brief summary of how the system works. There are 12 Regional competitions in late April or early May. Minnesota is in Region 8, which consists of Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota. The 2017 Region 8 Competition will be April 20-23 at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, but in the future, this competition may take place in any of the five member states. From Regionals, divers qualify to compete at a Zone Competition. Minnesota is in Zone D, which is made up of Regions 7 (Illinois and Missouri) and 8. This year’s Zone D Meet is in Brown Deer, Wisconsin from June 22-25. From the Zone competitions, divers qualify for the USA Diving AT&T National Championships to be held July 29-August 12 at Ohio State University in Columbus. North Star Diving Club does plan to attend these competitions with any divers who qualify and are interested. As we progress as a club and as individual divers, there may be additional competitions such as a winter National Championship, Synchro National Championship and more that are available. For more information about these competitions, you can visit the USA Diving website or contact us directly with questions. More information about qualifications, specific events offered at competitions, costs, etc. will also be sent as we get closer to these events.
