USA Diving Qualification

    USA Diving Regionals, Zones, and Nationals

    Junior Region Championships
    The top 15 divers on each event plus any divers who meet the qualifying score will advance to zones. Divers can attend the region of their choice, but if they advance, they must compete at the corresponding zone.
       
    Zone Championships
    Zone Championships have been combined this year, so junior divers who wish to try to qualify for both junior and open events at the AT&T USA Diving National Championships no longer need to travel to two separate zone meets.

    - The top three finishers in each junior event will advance to the semifinals of the corresponding event for the AT&T USA Diving National Championships.

    - Junior divers who finish fourth through 10\P on springboard events or fourth through eighth on platform events shall qualify for the preliminaries of the corresponding event at nationals.

    - Additionally, the top three Group A divers and the top two Group B divers on each event shall qualify to the finals of the corresponding ‘open’ event at zones, provided they meet the eligibility criteria.

    - The top five finishers in each open event shall qualify to the preliminaries in that corresponding event.
       
    AT&T USA Diving National Championships
    - The top 12 divers from the preliminaries in the junior events will advance to the semifinals (where they will be joined by the top three finishers from each of the Zone Championships).

    - The top 12 finishers from the semifinals of the junior events will advance to the finals.

    - The winner of each event in the Group A and Group B categories shall also qualify for the finals of the corresponding event in the open category, provided they meet the eligibility criteria.

    - There are no changes to the qualifying procedures for the open events, except for the Group A and B winners earning a spot in the finals.
       
    ***This series is extremely competitive and most divers compete at the Regional and Zone level many times before qualifying for the National meet. I encourage all divers with the JO level dive list to begin competing at these events as early as possible to gain valuable competition experience as well as knowledge of how US Diving works. I hope every member of our team who is eligible to compete will join us this summer!***
