The men's 3 metre springboard, also reported as plongeons du tremplin (English: trampoline diving), was one of five diving events on the diving at the 1924 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was actually held from both 3 metre and 1 metre boards. Divers performed six compulsory dives - standing backward plain dive, standing forward dive with twist, standing inward piked dive with twist, standing reverse piked dive, standing reverse plain dive with twist (3 metre board) and a standing forward somersault piked dive (1 metre board) - two jury-drawn dives and four dives of the competitor's choice for a total of twelve dives. The competition was held on Wednesday July 16, 1924, and Thursday July 17, 1924.
A point-for-place system was used. For each dive, the divers were ranked according to their dive score and awarded points based on their rank for that dive (the best dive earned 1 point, the next-best 2 points, and so on).
Seventeen divers from nine nations competed.
The three divers who scored the smallest number of points in each group of the first round advanced to the final.
