Fran is great.
She is great with my young daughter. Pushes her just enough to get he message across, but not too much that is turns my daughter off to diving.
After only three lessons I could see a dramatic improvement.
She's the best! So patient but pushes just enough to make progress! Thank you!
My 10 year old daughter was brand new to diving when she met Coach Fran. I am amazed at how much she has learned in only a couple of months. For beginners, like my daughter, I really like how Fran covers all the basic fundamentals before moving on to more difficult dives. She also has very creative training techniques that have worked great for my daughter's confidence . Fran has a warm, outgoing and fun personality, and is a great fit for my daughter.
Coach Fran is excellent. I am impressed with her professionalism and motivation to kids. She cares ! Coach Fran is creative and speaks to their level of understanding and gets the job done. I would say that she is also very professional with the parents at the same time.
I started the dive team at Maranatha High School as a junior with absolutely no diving experience and no background in gymnastics. Coach Fran taught me everything I needed to know to place at CIF both junior and senior year. With that experience, I have moved on and am currently diving at a D2 college and enjoying every minute of it. Coach Fran is a wonderful coach who is very encouraging and makes practices fun. She will push her divers only to limits that are reachable; I never felt that she was asking me to do something that I was not prepared for. Practices were always fun and we always got a lot accomplished in short time period. *Andrew Rotundo – 2 time CIF Div III Finalist, NCAA Div II Collegiate Diver
Coach Fran is the type of coach you want for any level or any age. She has a passion for the sport of diving and that passion is very contagious. As an athlete she was part of a premier club team and an elite college team (University of Notre Dame). If you’re a first timer, looking to improve your skills, or simply just looking to have some fun!!! I recommend you work with Coach Fran!

Throughout my high school diving experience, Coach Fran has designed her practices to be encouraging, fun and instructive. She has the ability to coach others in order to reach their full potential as well as have a fun time with the sport she loves. The most important aspect of Coach Fran’s teaching style is that she wants everyone to have fun with the sport and simultaneously learn more about diving. She wants everyone who participates to enjoy the sport and be passionate about what they do. It was ultimately Coach Fran’s fun attitude and passion for coaching that made me return to the sport after an extended break of approximately 2 years. Being a high school coach, she is also very well aware of the different levels of experience that each diver has. On our high school team we have both nationally ranked club divers as well as high school divers who can both relate to her positive, upbeat attitude. Her practices are not only beneficial to the diver, but create a fun environment for everyone she coaches!
