Diving is a youth and family-oriented sport that also serves the extreme sports market with visual appeal. As one of the nation’s most decorated with 138 Olympic medals, it is routinely one of the first sporting events to sell out at the Olympic Games and among the top four most-watched sports during the Summer Games.

Our member-driven organization is comprised of divers, coaches, parents and fans who share a love for the sport of diving and who exhibit fierce brand loyalty to the sponsors and partners who support our organization. USA Diving has over 355,000 followers across its four main social media platforms: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok, with even more viewers tuning in for our live-streamed events.

Every Olympic Diver makes their way through our program, diving at the regional, zone and National Championships. Our events are the perfect opportunity for your city and local businesses to get national exposure and become a part of the USA Diving's Olympic story.

Hosting a USA Diving championship has numerous benefits, which include:

  • The nation’s top divers (including Olympians for senior national championships) competing for national titles in your city
  • Broadcast opportunities & national media exposure for promotion of your city
  • Economic impact, as families will travel from all areas of the country to your city, utilizing local hotels, restaurants, etc.
  • Encouraging youth sport in your community and growth for your local diving club program
  • Hosting the third most popular summer Olympic sport in your town
