About Aaron Dziver
He began his coaching career while he was a student at the University of Manitoba. At the time, Les Hansen, a former Canadian junior national team member who was the university’s assistant coach, asked Aaron to help out.
The following year, he accepted a coaching position with young pre-competitive divers. He found himself at Winnipeg’s Pan Am Diving Club in 1993 and over the next few years, worked with athletes who had success at the Canadian junior national level. In 1998, Tong Hui, Dive Calgary’s head coach, offered him an assistant-coach position. One year later, Michel Larouche offered him a coaching position at Montreal’s CAMO Club. He became CAMO head coach in the fall of 2008 when Larouche joined Diving Plongeon Canada on a full-time basis.
In January 2017, Dziver became a full-time coach with Diving Plongeon Canada at Montreal’s Institute national du Sport. Over the years, he has won many Coach of the Year awards.
Part of a military family, Dziver moved around quite a bit as a child. He began diving at the age of 8 at the Ottawa-Carleton Diving Club based out of the University of Ottawa then found himself with the Pan Am Diving Club in Winnipeg at age 11. He represented Manitoba at the Canada Games. He currently resides in Terrebonne, Québec, which happens to be the city he’s lived in the longest!
