The 2012 Amateur Athletic Union Diving National Competition will host more than 400 elite divers from all over the country. The five-day event, which starts July 24, marks the culmination of the season, and will bring together AAU national qualifiers ranging in ages from nine and under to 19 and up. AAU sports manager Anastsia Saunders says the number of AAU members on the East Coast far exceeds that of anywhere else in the country, and the national Huntersville event is expected to draw many top-level divers. The competition is a unique opportunity for the community to come out and witness a sport at its highest level. --Amber Burton
