Dive Team Coaching Staff
Head Dive Coach: Andy Goe
We are thrilled to announce that Andrew Goe will be joining our team as Head Dive Coach. Andy recently moved to Richmond from Midland, TX to become the University of Richmond’s Dive Coach. Andy recently established the AAU Richmond dive club Entelechy Dive Academy.
Andy has over 20 years of combined Dive Coaching experience with summer camps and leagues, year-round dive clubs, high school and middle school teams, and D-1 college teams. Andy’s focus on fundamentals will help our new divers learn the sport and his expertise in mechanics and progressions will further elevate our more experienced divers. Andy’s goal is to make summer dive fun and engaging. He is excited to be a part of this team and make it a great summer for everyone!
Assistant Dive Coach: Cady Baron
We are so happy to have Coach Cady return as assistant dive coach this year! Cady was our assistant coach last year, and has been on the Bon Air Dive Team since 2016. She is on the year-round dive team at DiveRVA, and was the first member of the James River High School Dive Team this year, and has seriously impressed the judges…making it to States this year!
Cady is passionate about diving, and is excited about leveraging this coaching role to spark that passion in other divers.
