St. Louis Diving Club
Coach Greg Triefenbach:
Greg started diving when he was just seven years old. He qualified for two Junior World age group competitions (Oslo Norway at age 15, and Madrid Spain at age 17). He was ranked 6th in the world in the 16-18 age group on tower.
Greg took a full scholarship to Louisiana State University and won the SEC Conference Title 3 times. He was a 5 time All American amongst 1 meter, 3 meter, and tower with his highest finish at 3rd place in the 1993 NCAA Championships.
Greg took his first job and worked three seasons at Virginia Tech University where his diver set the Atlantic 10 conference record and he himself earned the Atlantic 10 coach of the year award. He spent the next four seasons as Head Diving Coach at the University of Missouri and earned Big 12 coach of the year by his third season.
He then left the college ranks to focus on Junior level diving and spent one season in Midland Texas where he took a 15 year old girl to 1st place at the Senior US Open. They went on to win the Junior Nationals later that year. He moved home and took over the club here in St. Peters and established St. Louis Diving Club. It has been operating successfully for the past 10 years. In that time, he has coached several Junior National champions and was made the USA National Team coach three different years.
In 2008, Greg was made the Cyprian National Team coach and took a 17 year old to the World Cup in Beijing China where they missed qualifying for the Olympic Games by less than 10 points.
In his time spent owning and working for St. Louis Diving Club, he and his staff have sent every high school senior from his club off to dive on scholarship. Most recently, he has developed a first time starting diver from age 9 all the way through her club career and helped her to receive a full scholarship to a Division 1 University.
