AIDA Competition Regulations

The competition will run under AIDA rules. You may download from AIDA Competition Rules

 

Competition Format

Overall standings will be determined by adding points from each discipline (points will be allocated as per the AIDA rules, which is 1 point per metre of depth, less any penalties). The overall women’s and men’s champions will be the female and male athletes, respectively, with the most number of points.

Athletes may choose to do any depth discipline on any day, and therefore may choose to do one discipline more than once, however, only the best result in a given discipline will count towards the athlete’s overall points tally.
