Learn diving “So Dive in” was first written 1990 as a little book and accepted by the ASA. It was used for the “World Start Programme” at the time. Revised – online format.
The above chapters it will give you an over view of our favourite sport. They explain the judging system and the scoring system, plus who are responsible for the competitive angle of the sport.
A few progressions are talked about re both in your build up and into, and through the competition levels.
I hope when you sit comfortably at home and watch the top divers of the world performing the intricate movements from the boards and into their “rip” entries this little insight will help you understand the “ins and outs more.” Learn diving!
“Lani and Celie took their Mum to the diving pool
Mum thought they were acting so cool
Causethey always said they wanted to dive
and for that,their Mum was filled with pride.
Lani and Celie looked across to the very high board,
From which they watched divers that flew and soared.
They watched bounciest boards pressed down and up,
Watched boys and girls, with perfect run up
Flying forwards, backwards… whichever which way,
Showing different turns and shapes… come what may
Sliding into the water without a single splash
Oh goodness me they gasped “what panache”
The girls so wanted to join in all the fun
To join a club simply had to be done
Soon Lani and Celie will become part of a diving club
To acquire new friends and skills within this hub
Who knows they might become a champs one day
One thing is for sure, they’ll try to find a way!”
