Find the best diving lessons, classes, and instructors at HeyKiki and learn how to dive. Diving is a sport in which divers jump and fall into a body of water from a platform or springboard, sometimes while performing acrobatics, at varying heights. It is an Olympic sport, as well as a recreational pastime. Competitively, divers are judged by the accuracy of the dive, the position of the body at the time of the dive, the difficulty and success of the acrobatic moves, and the angle of the body when the body touches the water. To this extent, divers often train to improve their strength, flexibility, and accuracy in the same manner as gymnasts and dancers.
