To participate in New Hartford Diving, all athletes must be registered with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). All divers must register through the New Hartford Anti-Gravity Diving Team. DO NOT register independently with AAU. Along with insurance through AAU, membership also allows New Hartford divers to participate in local, state, and national competitions hosted by other AAU Diving Clubs.

The AAU insurance program is comprehensive in nature and provides protection for athletes while participating in competitions and practices, coaches while instructing, event operators while conducting sanctioned events, spectators while attending events, and facilities while partnering with AAU members, to name a few.
