Hi, I'm Abigail and I am 17. I have been diving for three years and I have now moved to Corinth ms:/ I'm having trouble finding a pool to practice at but I have taught 4 girls the basics and beginner dives for 1m spring board diving. I have competed in sections and I am in the top five divers for central IL (there's a lot of teams in IL). If you would like, I would gladly teach your daughter the basics/safety to diving on a 1m spring board. I just don't know where... Contact me if you're interested
