The two-day event will include divers from around the central region states and will be held inside Calvin’s Venema Aquatic Center. Action will begin on Friday at 5 p.m. (EST) and will continue on Saturday at noon. Men’s and women’s divers will be seeking to qualify for the upcoming NCAA III Championships on both the one and three-meter diving boards. Admission to spectators will be free for the weekend. A complete list of competitors and schedule of diving sessions is expected to be announced Wednesday afternoon when the list of declared divers is released. The winners of each (one and three-meter) diving competition will gain automatic berths to the NCAA III Championships. A further number of at-large berths will also be available.
The number of berths available at Calvin’s regional should be announced no later than Thursday.
