If you are receiving this message, then you completed your INTENT TO PARTICIPATE form for the AAU Diving White North Qualifier at BGSU. Please read ALL of the info below carefully. ALL of the info below is on the meet page on our website for your easy reference later on: The tentative timeline is also on this page as well as the dive requirements.

The hotel block deadline has passed, but if you are still interested in staying in the same hotel, you are welcome to see what they may still have available at their going rate:

Fairfield Inn & Suites Bowling Green
1544 East Wooster Street
Bowling Green, OH

The AFD Team Suit ordering deadline has passed. You should plan to wear your Primary suit for Saturday's competition events and your Day 2 suit for Sunday's competition events. 

The AFD Apparel ordering deadline has passed. Apparel is expected to be delivered in time for this meet even if I have to distribute at the Team Dinner Meeting as I have in the past. You are expected to wear AFD Apparel on deck during practice, warm-ups and on the podium for awards. If you don't have any AFD apparel, please let us or a friend know and someone will find something for you to borrow.

Please complete your reservation/payment to attend the AFD Team Dinner Meeting which will be on Friday, March 13 immediately following practice at 7:30pm. All the details are on the form. The deadline to complete this form is Friday, March 6: click here for the form. Divers and their family members are welcome. 

Event entries close to LATE FEES this weekend at the end of Sunday, March 8. You should register before midnight on Sunday, March 8 to avoid the late fees. You can register at Have your AAU Diving Membership number handy. Your diver should know their dive lists, but if you are unsure of what dives to register or what events to register for, please let me know. Dive requirements are listed on the AAU Qualifier page on our website (listed above.)

Please complete your DOI no later then Friday, March 13. Click here to complete the DOI. Please use Marc Cahalane (216.832.6073) as the Coach and use as the email (so I can keep all the documentation in one place.) This is mandatory to compete and must be completed by EVERYONE PRIOR to competing! AFD IS NOT ATTENDING RWB Spring Nationals in May. EVERYBODY should be indicating that they will be giving up their spot should they make RWB Spring Nationals. The White North Qualifer will also qualify you for Summer Nationals in San Antonio, TX. We are planning to take divers to San Antonio. Speaking of AAU Diving Summer Nationals, Coach Marc DOES NOT want anyone purchasing any NON-REFUNDABLE airfare or lodging until he has given the green light. Please do not expect any green lights until the last minute. 

Our practice time on Friday @BGSU is 5:30pm-7:30pm. The Team Dinner Meeting is immediately following at the hotel.

Student Recreation Center
1411 Ridge Road
Bowling Green, OH 43403

We will post in the Sports Engine app arrival times, warm-ups and practice times for Saturday and Sunday as well as any other information that comes in throughout the weekend. We typically do this very late in the day the night before each competition day (as this is when we get the info.) We will cover expectations and how the weekend will run with the divers (and parents) at the Team Dinner Meeting on Friday, March 13.

You should plan to arrive for all practices and warm-ups 30-45 minutes prior to their start time. Please make sure you watch the app regularly in case we post about running ahead or behind schedule. This is most important in the case of running ahead of schedule as we would not want you to miss your warm-up or event!

As always, please send me photos of you and your teammates to post on social media! I don't mind 1-2 of your favorite dive videos as well (please caption why it's one of your favorites). If you have an iPhone, feel free to text 330.261.2186. If you do not have an iPhone, please email your photos/videos to Unfortunately non-iPhone videos come across grainy when texted.

Please let me know if you have any questions. My response will be delayed beginning Sunday, March 8 - Wednesday, March 11 as I will be in West Virginia running the NCAA Diving Zone A Championships. I will be back in time to turn-around and head to BGSU with all of you! :)
