  2. DIVING INJURY RISKS “I was having fun with my friends at the pool. I thought it was OK to dive in but my head hit the bottom and when I tried to get back to the surface, I couldn’t move.” SLIDE 2

  3. VISITING AN AQUATIC VENUE OR ENVIRONMENT • When visiting an aquatic venue environment it is important that you take note of signs, warnings or notices. NO DIVING PERMITTED SLIDE 3

  4. TYPES OF INJURIES • The majority of water related spinal cord injuries result into diving into shallow water. Permanent paralysis is the most common result • Other diving injuries can include: • Broken teeth • Scalp injuries • Facial fractures. SLIDE 4

  5. HOW DOES A DIVING INJURY HAPPEN? • The swimmer performs a head first entry that is too deep for the water conditions with little or no protection for the head and neck • The swimmers head comes to a sudden stop but the body continues moving • This can cause the vertebrae in the neck to dislocate or fracture, which can also damage the fragile spinal cord. SLIDE 5

  6. How: Stand with toes of one or both feet curled over the edge. This will help prevent slipping on a wet surface. Hands will grip the leading edge of the starting surface (or handles, if supplied on the blocks, may be gripped) PREPARATION FOR A COMPETITIVE DIVE SLIDE 6
