Jacob started diving with NODC in 2009 and was one of our most inspiring leaders for our young divers. Through hard work and dedication, Jacob fine tuned his diving technique and level of difficulty to achieve success at the Provincial and National level. He is currently attending the University of West Virginia on an athletic and academic scholarship.
During Jamie's time competing for NODC, he was a six-time Senior Nationals qualifier and reached the finals of the 1-meter, 3 meter (three times) and platform at Senior Nationals, as well as a five-time Provincial 1-meter and 3-meter champion. He also reached multiple finals as a five-time Junior Nationals qualifier and also qualified for Canada's 2009 World Championship trials.
Jamie went on to dive for Purdue University, qualifying for the NCAA championships between 2011-2015. He was a Dive Canada Senior National Team member in 2015-6, winning two individual national titles and represented Canada at several international FINA GrandPrix competitions in Malaysia, Australia, Canada and the United States.
Jamie is currently a University of Toronto graduate student majoring in Exercise Science.
I started diving with NODC in 2000 when I was five years old. Diving quickly became my favorite sport because of how supportive, kind, and encouraging the coaches and other participants were. I had a proud 10 year career with NODC going to Nationals and winning Provincials with my Synchro partner Sarah Mayer. I loved the sport so much that I became a coach working along side Fernando Henderson. For me diving was the best part of my day and even if I was nervous to learn a new dive, my coaches always had faith in me and taught me so much more than just how to do flips. I reflect on my current accomplishments, graduating on an athletic scholarship in golf, and currently becoming a professional golf instructor because of the NODC program.
Diving is an unique sport that teaches discipline, strength, mental toughness and most importantly, how to build strong relationships.
I am proud to be an alumni of NODC and to this day I still help out when I can because of my diving family.
