COUNTY / GHSA STATE - DiVING

Diving is one of 12 events in a swim and dive meet. Diving is an individual event and the points are awarded as such. Meets can be one of two formats: 6 dives and 11 dives. Prior to a meet, divers will be informed as to which format the meet will follow. A dive is scored between zero and 10 points in either full or ½ -point increments by each judge.

• Dual meets have a 1m 6-dive format.
• The Cobb County Championship meet has a 1m 11-dive format.
• The GHSA State Championship meet has a 1m 11-dive format.
