The VIS Diving Program aims to create the optimum training environment for athletes competing at an international level, along with supporting emerging junior athletes with the potential to achieve success on the world stage. Working in partnership with Diving Australia (DA) and Diving Victoria (DV), the VIS divers are provided with elite coaching and support services to achieve this.
The current VIS squad is a mix of youth and experience with AnnaRose Keating and Lizzie Browne representing Australia at the Junior World Championships and a further four senior athletes selected to represent Australia at the World Championships in July 2019.
