DESCRIPTION

Dive Start.

Stand firmly on the poolside or starting blockwith toes wrapped around the front edge. Place hands to the front or side of the starting block; Fingers will secure starting position with body weight slightly forwards. Dive out down the pool to full stretch; Pike at the highest point of the dive whilst in the air in order to enter the water surface, the whole body enters through the same point of contact on the water surface as if you were diving through a hoop; Snap out of this position and into a streamlined position on immediate entry into the water in order for the body to follow through the same point of entry. If you dive too flat speed through the water and momentum from the poolside or starting block will be lost. Never dive into shallow waters.
