National Diver

Alex Hull (9 years) went to the National Skills diving competition at Sheffield following his qualification from the South East and London Regionals for National Skills.  Alex came 9th out of 18 boys when he competed at Nationals.

Ken then decided to take Alex to the ASA South East Regional Age Groups competition on the 18th May at Southampton.  Considering Alex only had 2 weeks to train for Age Groups he did extremely well and has qualified for National Age Groups on the 1 metre springboard in the 10-11 year boys group.

For the club to have a qualified age group diver is a fantastic achievement and Ken is extremely proud of this.

Well done Alex!
