FOSDA Purchases Bosu Ball!

The recently  Relaunched 100 club is gaining support with 41 tickets sold each month currently. The money raised from the first two draws has been put to good use to benefit the whole of the diving program.

After discussions with the coaches and the club Physiotherapist we decided an additional Bosu Ball was required for the dry side training Gym. This equipment aids divers from the beginning in the sport right through to Elite Divers.

We have identified several other similar items to aid all the divers which we plan to purchase as the 100 club funds grow.

Quote from Dean Cook, Chartered Physiotherapist, the Physio working with our top divers through British Diving:

“The Bosu Ball will be great for proprioception and control.  This means that the divers can do exercises in an unbalanced way to improve body control and movement.  The ball in an invaluable addition to the resources we already have for divers at all levels.  It is particularly useful for children as they go through periods of rapid growth and is key in the exercises used to plan for injury prevention.  I am delighted that FOSDA have been able to provide us with this extra equipment – thank you!”

We have also identified several sponsors interested in getting involved in the club, we shall keep you updated as they progress.
