Diving is one of the most spectacular and exciting aquatic sports and involves one or two divers performing spins, twists and somersaults into a pool from a series of heights.
The recent international successes of Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley as well as his mainstream TV show Splash! have brought diving well and truly into the public eye and participation has never been higher.
Diving has grown a lot over the past 100 years from plain dives on the poolside to forward 4 1/4 summersaults from 10 metre boards. Diving in the North West Region hope to make strides forward over the next few years.
Diving is split into two sectors, Springboard Diving which is performed from etiher the 1 metre or 3 metre boards and Highboard Diving which is performed from either the 5 metre, 7.5 metre or 10 metre boards, but only 10 metres is used in major competitions.
