Maple Manor’s Swimming & Diving team has offered fun summer training and competition to member families since 1962. Girls and boys ages 5-18 compete as one team in the Colonial Swim League in dual meets vs. six other area swim club teams. Maple Manor has been a force in this age-group summer league, with a league championship streak stretching from 1999 to 2018 and taking the title home again from 2021 – 2023. In addition to training and meets, the team has a lot of fun social activities for the kids throughout the season.
Athletes can start at a young age as part of the “pre-team” with most continuing to participate through high school, and many going on in their swim & dive careers to compete in high school plus at the regional, state, collegiate, national and international level. Maple Manor has one Olympian alumnus (Rob Cragg, diving; Montreal 1976), with several swim & dive athletes/alumni competing at the US Olympic Trials (three in 2020!) and representing the United States (and Maple Manor) in international competition.
Maple Manor’s coaching staff emphasizes to all swimmers the importance of proper technique, teamwork, sportsmanship, learning and most importantly – HAVING FUN!

My name is Karyn Creelman, and I am the new diving coach for Maple Manor. I have been diving since I was 8 years old and am currently a diver at Rider University. I am majoring in business management with a minor in entrepreneurial studies and will be a sophomore this coming year. I love to travel with my family and friends, and I’m super excited to share my knowledge and love for the sport with a new team!
