Diving Badge Scheme
The GBDF's National Grade Scheme is the only
independent scheme of diving awards. A series
of badges and certificates for participants in
diving lessons, it gives a progressive guide through the teaching of diving to beginners providing recognition and rewards for their achievements.

International Masters Events
As a result of a number of enquiries, I would like to clarify the situation with regard to international Masters diving events.
The Dutch Open Masters event in March 2014 has been cancelled. This is for one year only and will be run in 2015. FINA has reorganised the FINA Masters Championships, changing the year from even years to odd years to align with the FINA World Championships. LEN, in consequence, has re-organised its programme. The new programme can be seen here.
The Great Britain Diving Federation will continue to run a full programme of events in 2014, including the possibility of a major Masters event at the London Olympic venue in June/July. As soon as we have confirmation of this, we will let divers know.
