Edina High School (MN) Diving Coach; Owner and Head Coach of North Star Diving Club;
FINA certified judge; former USA Diving Director of Coaches Education; 2001 Mountain West Conference Men's Diving Coach of the Year; Nebraska State High School Champion and NCAA All-American as an athlete.

Edina High School (MN) coach Jason Baumann, has organized a comprehensive look into the seasonal training plan that he uses at the high school level. You'll get insight into the goals Coach Baumann sets over the course of a season, his coaching philosophy, how he improves his athletes' fundamental diving skills and a week-by-week training schedule designed to help divers peak when it matters most.

Season Planning

Before you can establish a schedule, you must set your goals for your team and individual athletes. Coach Baumann discusses the types of goals he sets and considers during the preseason, then dives further into the specific workouts needed to make significant progression during the season. It's important to identify the skill level of your athletes when they come in, as well as where as where you want them to be once the season concludes.

Using a PowerPoint presentation, Coach Baumann walks you through a week-by-week schedule that he typically follows during the high school season. You'll get insights on what Coach Baumann focuses on during each week for skill development, as well as how to keep athletes fresh for the postseason. Every week, a "voluntary of the week" is incorporated into practices to ensure that all essential dives are covered.

Daily Workouts

Coach Baumann explains daily workouts that are both efficient and creative. Workouts include dryland training, poolside training and work from the 1M board. Typically, Coach Baumann groups his divers by their ability levels at practice, which allows them to improve quicker than they would in one large group. Every practice includes 100s (front jumps), 200s (back jumps), going through the 1M board diving list and specific work on water entries.

Coach Baumann's practice planning and organization strategies are great for coaches of youth programs, high school teams and even collegiate instructors. You'll discover a great schedule for ensuring your athletes achieve plenty of growth and development over the course of a season.

Jason Baumann, diving coach at Edina High School and owner of North Star Diving Club, presents a comprehensive look into the dryland training that will help your divers become stronger, more flexible and technically proficient. The dryland drills you'll see in this video have helped Coach Baumann develop conference finalists and All-Americans at the collegiate level.

Stretching and Conditioning

The end goal for all of Coach Baumann's dryland exercises is to maximize effort and time to help divers get into the correct body position to do skills - and then apply those skills on the board and into the water. He begins by walking through a stretching routine designed to ready the parts of the body that undergo physical stress during various types of dives. Muscles from the neck to the legs are warmed up for practice or competition.

Once athletes are stretched out, Coach Baumann progresses to basic and advanced conditioning routines. The basic exercises include moves that divers of any level can execute to strengthen their core, including tucks, planks, supermans and burpees. Moves like headstands and aqua-mans are reserved for the advanced workout and should only be used by experienced divers. Exercises in b
