  • 1 Meter Springboard
  • 3 Meter Springboard

  • Synchronized Platform 

Each individual event will have age groups within the men’s and women’s divisions. The three best divers in each gender division’s age group will receive a medal. A participant’s age group is determined by that person’s age as of 31 December 2016. The age groups are as follows: 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Each synchronized team will have classes based on the average ages of each team member as of 31 December 2016. The three best teams of each class will receive a medal. The groups will be the same age categories as the individual divers set out above.

Dive warm up time will be available Wednesday August 10 from 12:00-2:00pm, and prior to the competition.

The Diving competition will be held on Thursday August 11 (3m Springboard/Synchronized Diving), and Friday August 12, 2016 (1m Springboard/Platform) from approximately 10:30 am to noon.   

A dive and synchro exhibition event will be held from 2:30-4:00pm on Saturday August 13 prior to the Pink Flamingo.


The competition will be conducted under the rules for Masters of the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) and following the recommendations of International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics (IGLA) and Diving Plongeon Canada. IGLA 2016 Diving Championships are held under the sanction of Diving Plongeon Canada.

The competition diverges from Diving Plongeon Canada and FINA rules by allowing participation of competitors 20 years of age and older, and by allowing an equal number of dives for male and female competitors (for females, this extra dive will be an unscored exhibition).
