Student Testimonials

"I have personally known Dave Burgering for the last fifteen years and can't say enough good things about him as a world class diving coach, motivator, and mentor. Dave has played many roles in my life through the years--the obvious one is that of a great coach and mentor....but Dave is much more then that to me he is also a second father and one of the very first people to this day who I pick up the phone to call and share adversities and triumphs."

"My daughter has been diving with Dave Burgering since age 9. She is now a freshman athlete at the University of Alabama. Dave Burgering taught her the skills she needed to be successful on the college level. I have found him to have a vast knowledge of the sport as well as compassion for all of his athletes. He has brought much success to the Fort Lauderdale dive team as a sincere, dedicated coach who is always willing to go the extra mile for his athletes."
