Klayton Stevens Memorial Fund

Dive San Diego is a small club, based in Carlsbad, CA. that offers instruction and training for all levels of diving, from beginners to champions.  We are an inclusive program.  With few exceptions we welcome all who wish to DIVE! “Come as YOU are”. Klayton Stevens was one of our divers, a coach, and most important, he was a beloved friend.  In March, 2015, his life ended tragically.  We miss him, his smile, his gentle nature, and his constant expression of friendship and kindness that left an indelible mark on all of our hearts.

As a gesture of remembrance, Dive San Diego announces the creation of the Klayton Sevens memorial dive meet which will be held annually. In addition, we are pleased to create the Klayton Stevens memorial fund.

Initially, money will be awarded to any diver who qualifies for any National meet to help defray the expenses of travel to the meet. Hopefully, as the fund grows the parameters of the award will expand.

“Come As YOU are” is a lyric from one of Klays favorite song. It is also, and has always been the first and most important part of our invitation to join Dive San Diego. We hope that we can communicate all of the great human qualities that Klay shared with us, to all who come our way, “Come as YOU are”.

So, please donate and we will use the money to help our children.  

Thank You, Don and Marnie Dive San Diego
