Dos Rios Divers Dive Club
DOS RIOS DIVERS is a competitive diving club with training on 1 meter Springboard, 3 meter Springboard and Platform diving. We are open to anyone who wants to dive, regardless of ability or past experience. Even though diving is a competitive sport, we believe it should be fun. Our team integrates this philosophy in practice and

My name is Mike Brown and I am the head coach for Dos Rios Divers. I have been the head coach since 1992 when the club was formed.
I am a self taught diver who began at the age of eight. Since I have been coaching I have constantly tried and am still trying to improve my coaching skills. My education has included a trip to China, with four of the clubs divers, to compete and attend coaching clinics.
I am a retired special education teacher/physical therapist and now devote myself to coaching the club and number of local high schools.
I am safety certified as a coach by USA Diving. That certification includes deep water rescue, CPR and first aid as well as diving safety. I have also been certified by USA Diving to safely hand or belt spot our divers in our indoor dryland training facility. Our gym is the only indoor dryland facility in Northern California.
My philosophy is that diving should be fun! I also believe that keeping the divers safe is the most important thing that I can do.
Diving is a wonderful sport. It has grace, power, beauty and excitement.
Haven't you always wanted to give it a try?
