McCormick Divers of Long Beach
McCormick Divers is a springboard and platform diving team located in Long Beach, California. Our team formerly trained at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool, which was built for the 1968 Olympic Trials.
The Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool was a huge glass complex, right on the beach, with great sunset views of the Queen Mary. It was the only indoor complex in Southern California with a full complement of springboards and platforms.
Our divers currently train at the Martin Luther King Park Pool and the new Long Beach City College pool at the Liberal Arts Aquatics Complex.
The City of Long Beach has approved rebuilding a state of the art pool with a separate diving well. When it is complete, it will again be home to McCormick Divers.
Our new practice entry board is being put to great use as our divers prepare for 2023 zones!
McCormick Diver Wins Bronze at Junior Pan American Games
Representing the United States, eleven year old Evelyn Wang won a Bronze Medal in 1 Meter Springboard Diving at the Junior Pan American Games. Wang trains with McCormick Divers and coach Maggie Zhou in Long Beach at the Martin Luther King Junior Pool.
October 9th, Wang joined divers in Tucson, Arizona for the inaugural Junior Pan American Games. The Pan Am Games started in 1951 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The games include Olympic sports with athletes from countries throughout North, South, and Central America. From 1951 – 2019, the games were only open to adult athletes. At the 2019 games, the first Junior Pan Am Games was announced.
While the main events will be held November 25th through December 5th in Cali, Colombia, some sports, like diving, are being held at alternate locations. This made it much more convenient for US divers to compete without having to travel internationally while the pandemic continues.
Winning medals at USA Junior Nationals and Junior Pan Am Games in her first year diving is a promising start for Wang’s diving career.
