9. DIVING: Changes for 2020: This is a 6-dive meet and the fee is $10 per diver.  Dive #1 is any dive that the diver chooses and will receive its assigned degree of difficulty (d.d.), unless its assigned d.d. is more than 1.8 in the diving table.  If dive #1 has an assigned d.d. of more than 1.8 in the diving table, it will receive a 1.8 degree of difficulty in this meet.  Dives # 2-6 are all optional dives that must be from 5 different groups.  That means dives #2-6  will be one from each of the forward, backward, reverse, inward, and twisting groups, all receiving their assigned d.d. from the diving table.  When the degree of difficulty of dives 2-6 are totaled, both boys and girls must have at least 10.4.

The meet will be conducted using divemeets.com and is now active on the system. A detailed instruction sheet is posted below under "DIRECTIONS". All divers must be registered with divemeets.com in order to submit a dive list. Divemeets.com has automated deadlines for submitting the dive list, which cannot be extended. The system will not accept any dive list or changes after the deadline. Please do not mail, email, fax, or drop off any diving sheet. The only divers who will participate are those who have been properly entered on Hy-Tek Team Manager by Jan. 13 at 6 p.m. AND who have registered and submitted a dive list on divemeets.com by Jan. 14 by 6 p.m. No more than 4 divers per gender per school may submit a dive list. If a school has more than 4 divers per gender, additional divers will be scratched. If there are more than 30 divers in either event, there will be a cut to 20 after 3 dives. This meet is not the place to attempt dives for the first time. The referee has the right and the authority to request a diver to demonstrate any dive that is listed in the divemeets submission, prior to the competition. No diver is allowed to practice or compete without an official coach from the school being on the deck with the participating diver. All divers must be included in the official entry on Hy-Tek Team Manager which must be e-mailed to swimanddive@westminster.net by the deadline.
