For your convenience, we’ve made the Technical Diving Rulebook available here online. It includes all rule changes adopted at the 2011 USA Diving Annual Meeting, and the addendum includes rule changes adopted at the 2012 USA Diving Annual Meeting.
Please note that we also offer printed Technical Diving Rulebooks. One copy of the rulebook is provided as a member benefit to coach and official members. Members may purchase additional copies for $10, and non-members may purchase a copy for $15. Orders may be placed online.
Any differences between the printed and online versions of the Rulebook are unintentional, but in most cases, the printed version should be considered the definitive text. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Rules Chair Hunter Shafer or Junior Rules Chair Jack Perkins.
We’ve also made the USA Diving Code available here online. Each Subpart of the Code contains a version date in the copyright notice at the bottom of each page. The version date is the last date upon which that Subpart was modified. Please note that as with the printed version, this material is copyrighted and may only be reprinted with the express permission of USA Diving. Questions and concerns regarding the USA Diving code should be directed to the Chair of the Governance Committee, Camila McLean.
