Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

01/19/23 – NFHS Coach Diving Course Required for Diving Coaches

January 19, 2023 Swimming Blog Updates


This is a reminder that all KHSAA schools that have student-athletes competing in diving, must complete the NFHS “Coaching Diving” course. This course is free and 100% online and is required.

This course was developed in association with the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association and USA Diving. It assists athletes with learning and coaches with teaching the introductory skills of diving. This valuable course also showcases useful drills and diving progressions, while also reviewing critical diving safety information. A great deal of success for divers comes from confidence, a skill that can be developed and nurtured by a dedicated teacher/coach.

Currently, this is a once-a-lifetime course, so once a coach has completed this course once, they are meeting the requirement. This course can be found at the following link:
