Mission Viejo to host 2023 USA Diving Junior National Championships

October 10, 2023, Mission Viejo, California — USA Diving and the Mission Viejo Nadadores announce
the return of the USA Diving Junior National Championships to Southern California in 2023. The
competition features 600 of the top junior divers from across the country competing in three events
and four age groups.

The competition and warmup dates are slated for July 24 – August 2, 2023, at the Marguerite
Aquatic Complex. The facility was completely renovated in 2018 and is one of the most iconic
facilities in the world of aquatics. The last time the event was held in Mission Viejo was 2007.
“We are thrilled to host this national event in Mission Viejo. It’s been more than 15 years since the
junior nationals were held in California, and I’m confident the Nadadores will do a tremendous job
as we welcome divers from across the country to Southern California,” said Lee Michaud, President
of USA Diving.

The competition is the most prestigious junior event USA Diving hosts and is the culmination of
region and zone championship qualifying. It serves as the competition to crown the best junior
divers from across the country as junior national champions and determines the divers who will
represent the United States at junior international meets. Divers ages 18 and under will compete in
their respective age groups.
