Skills competition – overview

The “Skills” event is a combination of pool side and springboard diving which is currently regarded as a measure of ability to proceed safely on to learn more complicated dives. There are 12 “dives” to perform.

Here are the dives required for the Skills Competition 

For the 8 to 13 year olds, in three groups, the pool side section examines front and back entries, the one metre part looks to how the take off and body position in flight is managed while the three metre section deals with experiencing falling from a greater height with clean, i.e. splash less entries. 

A 14 to 16 year old is expected to have mastered the basics so are mainly examined on a range of dives from both spring boards as well as two basic falls from 3 metre.
