College Diving Recruiting

Swimming and Diving Scholarships

Information to assist high school divers applying for a diving scholarship.

There are over 11,000 high school swimming and diving programs. With so much competition, it is incredibly important to find an edge in the diving recruiting process if you want to compete at the college level. Creating your free recruiting profile with BeRecruited will put you in contact with swimming and diving coaches all over the country. Diving coaches do not have large recruiting budgets so it’s important that you get your name out there and help coaches find you.

Diving, as a college scholarship sport, is unique. The sport is lumped together with swimming for both men and women and not all schools that have a swimming program also have a diving team. Diving is classed as an equivalency sport by the NCAA so coaches can divide their scholarship money between as many swimmers and divers as they wish. Some college swim teams focus exclusively on swimming recruiting and choose to not have a diving program at all. As a diver you will want to look for programs that treat diving seriously and hopefully award diving scholarships.

There are 565 colleges that have active intercollegiate swimming and diving programs. The sport is huge at the NCAA level, but not so big at the NAIA level where only 23 schools compete.

NCAA Division I.

198 schools compete with 135 men's swimming and diving programs and 197 for women. 9.9 scholarships are available for men and 14 for women.

NCAA Division II.

90 colleges offer swimming and diving programs. 66 men's teams and 89 women's teams compete. There are 8.1 scholarships awarded for both men and women.

NCAA Division III.

254 schools at this level have competitive swimming and diving programs. 251 for women, 218 for men. No athletic scholarships are available at D3 institutions but other forms of financial assistant may be available.

NAIA

23 schools compete with 8 scholarships on offer to both men and women. These are also equivalency grants in aid.

Divers need to remember that most college coaches only know about the top divers in the country and also those from their home state. National Championship meets, Senior Nationals and National Junior Olympic is where most of the college divers are recruited. It’s important to get on the coaches radars if you want to be recruited. In addition to being an excellent diver it is also equally important to be a strong student. The NCAA and NAIA place a high importance on academics and you will need to have good grades to be eligible to compete.
