COACHING US TO VICTORY
Meet Scott Pierson
As a competitor, Scott began diving at age five and continued year-round until age 23. During that time, he became a Fairfield County and High School State Champion in Connecticut. At the University of Miami, under Olympic Silver Medalist coach Tom Gompf, Scott was a qualifier for Division I NCAA competition on both the one-meter and three-meter boards, a National AAU Finalist on the 10-meter platform, and qualified for, and competed in the US Olympic Trials in the 10-meter platform event.
As a coach, Scott worked as Head Coach for the University of Houston where he recruited national and international divers for Division 1 NCAA competition, was voted Diving Coach of the Year in the Southwest Conference by fellow coaches, trained international divers for Olympic participation, and concurrently ran a children’s diving program, the Houston Diving Club, which had over 80 members and was the undefeated Texas State Champion three years in a row. One diver who started as a beginner became a National Age Group Champion in a four-year period. Many divers received college scholarships. Their success was due in part to the training methods he developed stressing the importance of correct fundamental skills and dive progressions.
