Welcome to the new Bangor Bilidowcars Diving Club website.
Diving is an exhilarating, challenging and fun sport that anyone and everyone can enjoy. For spectators diving offers a breathtaking spectacle of power and grace. For participating children it is a great way to improve their confidence, awareness as well as getting them fit and active.
Why not let your child try diving at Bangor pool?
Diving schemes in Wales use aspects of trampolining, gymnastics, ballet, yoga and many other sporting disciplines during sessions to give a varied and diverse approach to training.
Over 30 divers competed at the Xmas Splash. Great to see so many new divers attending their first competition. Well done divers, a really high standard of diving from all!
Huge thanks to Rich, Jake, Kate, Julie & Darren for coaching in the run up to the competition.
Thanks to judges Rich, Kate, Kirsty, Ollie, James, Manon, Kaitlyn, Leah & Sophie.
To Sam, Kath, Isabelle, Sarah, Jerry & Portia for outstanding support on the day.
Sharlotte for jumping in at the last minute to run the raffle (which raised £57.00 for the club)!
Andy for doing a fantastic job with the photography.
Thanks to Pool Manager, Mark Williams & his staff for help on the day.
More photos will be available shortly.
Bangor Diving Club’s AGM will be at The Boatyard, Garth Road, Bangor. 12:00 on Sat 29th November 2014.
Please come along if you would like to get involved & assist with developing the club.
Let us know if you are coming and if you want to order food (lunch) after the meeting.
Peter, Leah and Kaitlyn have just had another busy diving weekend. They traveled up to Leeds for the White Rose Novice Comp (the major novice event of the year).
Again all the divers were a credit to the club both in how the dived but also in how they behaved and conducted themselves.
A special mention to Peter who came in the top ten against such strong competition – very well done!
Another highlight for the children this weekend was the chance to meet and have photos taken with commonwealth medalists Jack Laugher, James Denny, Chris Means and Jamaican diver Yona Knight-Wisdom.
Bangor Divers have just come back from a very successful weekend at the Celtic Club Novice Cup in Aberdeen at the weekend.
Leah, Peter and Kaitlyn were the only divers there representing Wales and although unsurprisingly with only the 3 of them, Wales came last in the national points, they dived VERY well & individually they did brilliantly in their groups.
Leah won a Silver and 2 Bronze medals. Peter won a Gold and Silver medal. Kaitlyn also did very well although she missed out on a medal.
I would also like to add that the children did the club proud they behaved exceptionally all weekend, they showed great team spirit & support to each other especially with there being so few of them against such larger teams.
Well done divers!
& from the Swim Wales Website:
With a small contingent of divers Wales competed at the Celtic cup in Aberdeen from the 19/09/2014- 21/09/2014.
Divers from the Bangor Bilidowcar Diving Club represented Wales at the Celtic cup bringing home and impressive medal haul of 1 Gold and 3 Bronze medals.
Peter Goldberg and Leah Silverton shared the medal haul for Wales with Peter competing in the Boys group D event received 1 Gold and 1 Bronze medal and Leah competing in Girls group B event receiving 2 Bronze medals. Caitlin Hughes also put in impressive performances in a very tough Girls group C event to back up the results of the Welsh team.
Congratulations to all the divers competing at this year’s Celtic cup.
