John Smith Memorial

John Smith was an important part of the Central Maryland Dive League for many years. He was the founder of Frederick John Smith - CMDL DivingArea Divers, Coach, and Vice President on the CMDL board of directors. We are saddened by his passing and revere his passion and dedication to the kids he coached and the sport of diving.

The John Smith Excellence in Coaching Award

To honor the Legacy of John, the Board of Directors has voted to create a new annual award for coaching excellence in the CMDL.  Each division will choose a recipient and the awards will be presented at the CMDL Championships in July.

In addition to the John Smith Excellence in Coaching award, we will be observing a minute of silence before the first meet of the season to honor John’s legacy.

We will also have a place online for donations for the family of John Smith soon. We are working on the details now and plan to have it functional before the first meet.
