Ben Carman

Ben been coaching for 7 years. He started diving at 8 years old at St. Albans Diving Club which after the council said they were building a new facility (with no diving boards) it fell apart!

Relocated to Hemel Hempstead Diving, which is now Dacorum Diving Club, Ben stayed there for around a year and then moved to Beaumont Diving Academy in Hatfield.

Ben has won medals at National Skills & Age groups between 2012-2014 and has also dived abroad in the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and training in America.

Made it to Elite Juniors and 2015 which was Ben’s last national event as a diver.

Ben was selected to the AASE program for Swim England and had a Croatia training camp as part of the program which was fantastic as he got to train along side the following divers, Matty Lee, Ross Haslam, Jorden Houlden and Gemma McArthur.

At the end of 2016, Ben stopped diving  and decided to take his coaching certificates.

Ben started coaching at Beaumont Diving Academy and was there for a year before he moved to Plymouth in 2017, where he obtained a degree in Psychology whilst coaching a mix of diving abilities from Lessons to Elite and Performance athletes.

After University he moved and stated coaching a full time role in Corby in Jan 2012 where he was building the program from the grass routes level up to skills level divers.

Now he is at Luton Diving Club!
