Wesleyan University needed to improve their 3-meter diving facilities in order to remain competitive in a very strong swimming and diving conference. As part of the New England Small College Athletic Conference, the Cardinals regularly face teams with storied diving programs. The original arrangement included two single stand 3-meter diving boards, which meant coaches were providing instruction from the deck, nearly 10 feet away. The new design incorporates a sculptural concrete elevated platform reminiscent of a diver’s ready position with outstretched arms. This platform is large enough to allow divers and coaches to gather at board level, improving diving preparation and instruction. The platform, with the inscribed Wesleyan “W”, also provides a visual anchor for spectators at the opposite end of the 50-meter facility.
