Pool Depth Requirements for Diving

USA Swimming has adopted rules regarding the depth of pools and diving from blocks. Effective January 1, 2003, diving from BLOCKS into LESS THAN 4 FEET of water is NOT permitted under any circumstances. The measurement must be made from a distance of one meter from the end of the pool. Diving may be done from the deck and in-the-water starts are allowable.
