Once again, the State Meet is an eleven (11) dive meet. Therefore, divers must complete the minimum 11-dive DD qualifying standard at the State Championship Meet.

All diving sheets must be completed and turned in after the diving coaches meeting in the Natatorium classroom on Thursday. This will give the diving referee time to check all sheets. See Swimming and Diving Rule # 9 for details. As in the past, the diving judges will be selected from those schools with diving entries. When your State Meet entries are sent to the KSHSAA, you must also send the name of a qualified diving judge (not necessarily the diving coach). Please list their name in the area provided on the pass gate list. This person must be an adult. The names of the judging panel will be assigned by the KSHSAA. The teams who are selected to provide a judge will be notified by the KSHSAA in advance of the meet.
