Rule 3-5 Clarification - Electronic Equipment Use During Diving (added 10-5-18)

Recently, some confusion has arisen over the use of a DVR / TV to be used and played during diving competition, as is seen at some schools. Officials are reminded that this equipment should be turned OFF during competition.

Rule 3-5 states, "Electronic devices shall not be used to transmit information to competitor(s) during the race or dive."

While the word "dive" is singular, Illinois has long held that to mean the entire diving EVENT, which consists of either six (6) or eleven (11) dives.

It is also important to note that using a DVR or other camera to record a diver during competition so that coaching and instruction may occur later IS acceptable. The rule only prohibits the transmission of images or information during an event. If the monitor is turned off or covered, the rule is satisfied.


Dual Confirmation Mechanics Clarification (added 9-4-18)

There has recently been a great deal of confusion (and therefore inconsistency) regarding dual-confirmation. When is it to be used? When is it not to be used? Do we raise a hand? If so, when?

Please refer to the following Q&A document, which hopefully will clarify things. The IHSA has reviewed and does support this information.
