Highly organised, professional and passionate, Holly and her team go above and beyond to not only make sure you pass but that you have the skills and knowledge necessary to hit the ball running in your diving career, ten stars if it was an option.

I did my IDC with Holly and she was just amazing. The time allowed for the course was perfect to get sufficient practice before the IE. It was an awesome experience and we all succeeded at the IE! Thank you, Holly!
