Diving is permitted in swimming pools with a minimum water depth of nine foot during posted times only. For your safety, we've established the following diving guidelines:

  • All users under 13 years of age must pass the YMCA of South Hampton Roads Swim Test prior to use
  • One diver on diving board or steps at a time.
  • Immediately exit the pool using the ladder to the left or right of the diving well.
  • Only one swimmer is permitted in the diving well at a time.
  • Inward/cutaway dives and any other dives deemed unsafe by the aquatics director are not permitted.
  • Dive straight--diving to either side of the diving board is not permitted.
  • Goggles, jewelry, toys or restrictive devices that could cause injury are not permitted.
  • Please consider appropriate swim attire before using diving board.
