Fees

Scoring:
Points will be awarded for each discipline as per the AIDA scoring system. Each performance is converted into points using the following scales:
  • Static Apnea: 1 second of immersion = 0.2 points
  • Dynamic Apnea (DYN/DNF/DYN-BIFINS): 1m of distance = 0.5 points
  • For the purposes of overall scores only, an uplift of 15% will be added to performances of DYN-BIFINS to ensure results are comparable to DYN-MONO performances
The winners will be the team with the highest combined score for all 6 performances. Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams overall.
​​Best Newbie
The only individual prizes will be for Best Newbie. These prizes will be awarded to the male and female athlete entering their first comp with the highest combined score.

Pool Info
We have been informed that the competition wave breaker lane ropes are not available so the lane ropes used will be standard pool ropes. We will do all we can to ensuring these are tightened as much as possible and floats attached to ensure they are able to support athletes surfacing. We have a fantastic team of experienced safety divers, all have all supported previous competitions, who will have the brief to support the lane ropes with their floats if needed to ensure the ropes do not dip.
