FOSDA Medicine Balls - full imageHave you seen the photo of two of our coaches with the new Medicine Balls purchased from the FOSDA 100 club funds?

These medicine balls are weighted from 1kg upwards and were identified as a requirement to aid all our divers with various strength and conditioning exercises.
The coaches have put them to good use in the Dry land training already, thank you to everyone supporting the 100 club and if you would like to get involved please email us at .
