Welcome to Sunderland City Dive Team

  • 2 x 3m spring boards

  • 1 x 3m platform

  • 1 x 5m platform

  • Land training at Sunderland Aquatic Centre

  • Trampolining at Washington Leisure Centre


We encourage all divers to take part in a range of diving competitions, nationally and internationally as well as organising our own SDCT annual competition.


Our values:

  • Everyone is valued and encouraged to learn, progress and enjoy

  • Our members are proud to represent the club and Sunderland City

  • We strive to be inclusive, ready to challenge and be challenged


We aim to raise the profile of diving in Sunderland and across Tyne and Wear, to encourage more people to join us, to operate efficiently and effectively as a volunteer led organisation and to welcome everyone regardless of age, ability, gender or culture to experience diving.

Above all we want to support divers to challenge themselves and to have fun.
