In December, the Clemson diving team spent one week of the holiday break attending its annual winter training trip in Greensboro, NC. In addition to the hours they spent training, the members of the team also found time to volunteer in the local community.
On Dec. 17, the Tigers reached out to five young aspiring divers by hosting a clinic at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in hopes of sharing their knowledge and passion for the sport. During the clinic, the student-athletes worked with the young divers on basic diving skills, and gave them some insight as to what it is like being a collegiate student-athlete and how diving has impacted their lives.
Senior diver Emily Howard had the following to say about the experience:
“Our team had a great night working with the kids. You could tell they were really inspired by our team. It was amazing to see everyone get involved and make connections with the kids. This sport has given so much to all of us, and we had a great time sharing our passion with the young divers.”
