There are 3 Girls Sport Victoria Diving competitions held in the season: The Preliminaries (which are used to seed schools into 3 groups of 8 for the Championship competition), The Championships and the Finals Evening.
At each event separate competitions are held for Juniors (Years 7 & 8), Intermediates (Years 9 & 10) and Seniors (Year 11 & 12).
At the Preliminary and Championship events divers perform 3 dives:
- The first dive must be one of the following: 101 (Forward Dive), 103 (Forward 1 ½ somersault), 105 (Forward 2 ½ somersault) or 107 (Forward 3 ½ somersault)
- The second and third dives must be completely different dives from different groups, with the following exception;
- a dive can be repeated from the forward group, but it cannot be the same dive as performed in the first dive.
- E.g. 101A 1m/ 201 A 1m/ 102 C 1m
- Dives may be performed from either the 1 metre or 3 metre board
Following the Championships, the ten best divers in each Division (Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors) qualify for the Finals Evening. At the Finals Evening divers are required to complete 4 dives from at least 3 different groups.
GSV also holds training meets (known as ‘PB Meets’) prior to the Preliminary Finals to offer girls the opportunity to experience an inter-school diving competition in a relaxed format.
