The Windsor Diving Club is officially up and diving.

Diving Plongeon Canada, in collaboration with the City of Windsor, celebrated the establishment of the new club on Tuesday morning.

Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens along with Diving Canada's chief technical officer Mitch Geller were on hand for the event at the aquatic centre.

Olympian Ioana Marinescu is the head coach of the Windsor Diving Club.

Divers, coaches and local leaders are all counting down to the 2016 FINA/NVC Diving World Series, which runs April 15-17.
