Who we are

Masters diving is an organized program of Diving for adults. U.S. Masters Diving, founded in 1974 by John Deininger, a former professional diver, it is a nonprofit membership national governing body. The program began when the first National Masters Diving Championships were held on June 14-14, 1974 in San Angelo, TX. Nate Holt was the meet director.

There were very few competitors at the first meet, but over the past 40 years it has grown so that there are now thousands of masters divers worldwide.

Masters divers come from varied backgrounds. Some are former competitive, national, and international divers including some former Olympians. For others, Masters is their first time diving competitively. Masters Diving not only is a competitive group, it is also a social group.
