Meet Nellie! She is a recent diver and is really thriving at Future Stars’ diving camp. Nellie is 11 years old and going into 6th grade. She is actually from Florida, but is staying in Westchester for the week just to come to our Diving camp! Discover more about this talented young lady!
Meg: Hi Nellie! How are you today?
Nellie: “I’m good”
Meg: So, how has camp been for you so far?
Nellie: “It’s been great. I was just working on trying to get my reverse flip before lunch.”
Meg: Wow, awesome! So, how long have you been diving before this week?
Nellie: “I have actually never dove on a team before. There is just a diving board where I usually swim at home and I would always try out new tricks there, so I decided to come to camp here!”
Meg: Wow, well what have you learned so far, since this is your first time practicing diving with a coach.
Nellie: “I have learned how to do a one and a half on one meter and three meter. I am also working on my gainers. I also do inwards now.”
Meg: Woah, so you have really learned a lot! Do you think that you will keep diving since you are on such an improvement streak?
Nellie: “Yeah, my mom is looking into places for me to practice in Florida!”
Meg: Yay! That’s great to hear. So is there anything that you specifically want to work on when you are here this week?
Nellie: “I really want to be able to do a 2 and a half. Either on the one meter or three meter.”
Meg: That’s super impressive. Anything else?
Nellie: “I also want to work on my twisters. And also doing more advanced inwards.”
Meg: I bet you will be able to get to those dives by the end of this week at this rate. So, what else do you like to do in your spare time?
Nellie: “I like to swim and surf. I also used to do gymnastics.”
Meg: Oh cool, do you surf in Florida?
Nellie: “Yeah, a bunch.”
Meg: Well, I am so glad I got to meet you and thanks so much for talking to me! Hope to see you next summer!
