Make a splash wth Nick's diving show!
Around the Academy:

Nick (left) and Kim show you the diving basics
Hi, I'm Nick Robinson-Baker, the current European junior diving silver medallist.

Diving is a fantastic sport which keeps you really fit, so why not give it a try?

Watch my masterclass:

I've teamed up with Kim White, who's the Junior Olympic Programme manager for British diving, to give you a beginner's guide to making a splash.

My top tips for becoming a diving star:

  • Think positive! It's really important to have the right attitude. Diving can be hard - especially when you're a beginner - but perseverance will pay off

  • Listen to your teacher or coach. They know what they're talking about and they're there to help you

  • Make sure you eat well. I like to eat pasta, chicken, fruit and vegetables. You can treat yourself every now and then, but on the whole try and eat healthily
