       3. Things to remember


• Timing is very important when it comes to
  submit your diving sheets. You have to submit
  your diving sheets 48 hrs prior your event.
  VDA and Diving Australia may ask you to do
  this in triplicate.
• Ask your coach to check your diving sheet
  before submitting it. Nobody else knows you
  better as a diver!!! But you choose your dives.
• Keep a copy of your diving sheet and have it
  with you during the competition. You can give
  your coach a copy as well.
• Always check the entry form information,
  there may be changes regarding timing or
  diving sheets submission .
• Always check and sign your dive sheet
                     4. FAQ

Once I submit my diving sheet, can I change any
  dive?
      The answer is NO, generally speaking officials will not
      allow you to change any of the dives you wrote in your
      diving sheet. Therefore, it is very important to double
      check it with your coach before.
If the incorrect dive or position is on my dive
   sheet, do I have do that dive in the competition?
      Yes. This is why it is so important that you write the
      dive sheet yourself. You are the one who will
      remember the position of your dives better than your
      coach. For example you may do a forward dive tuck, if
      someone else writes your sheet they may accidentally
      write forward dive pike, a dive you may not be able to
      do. You would have to do pike if it was on your dive
      sheet.
    Where do I put my completed dive sheet after
     my coach has checked it and I have signed
     it?
      Place it into the silver Dive Sheet Box in the
      Divers Room at MSAC or in Box number 9 at
      MSAC
