Hi, my name is Taylor Edlin, and I am really excited to see you on the boards. I am a Clayton high school All-American diver and have been competing since the age of 14. For the past three years, I have placed in the top ten at the Missouri State Championship, and I absolutely love the sport. Developing spatial awareness is a big part of diving, and it is my mission as a coach. Once this is mastered, self confidence, and mental strength matures easily. Diving gets you in great shape and gives you the courage you will need to conquer any goal. I am honored to work for the Center of Clayton, and be your coach.
