On-Court Brawl at Georgia Basketball Tournament 
Incorrectly Labeled as AAU

Event not licensed by the AAU organization

ORLANDO, Fla (July 8, 2018) –   Since 1888, the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) has provided amateur athletic opportunities in cities throughout the United States. As the largest multi-sport organization in the country, the AAU is the standard bearer for premier event hosting.

Over the years, the AAU brand has become synonymous with non-scholastic basketball.  While AAU is the industry leader in offering quality basketball programming, not all events labeled ‘AAU’ are licensed by the AAU organization.

Contrary to recent media reports, the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) organization did not licensethe Gatorade Association Presents the Finals boys’ basketball event at Lakepoint Sports facility in Georgia this past weekend (July 7-8) which featured an on-court brawl by participating players and referees. This event was not licensed by the AAU. Therefore, the event should not be referenced as ‘AAU.’ 

“The incident at the non-AAU basketball event in Georgia is unfortunate,” said Dr. Roger J. Goudy, AAU President/CEO. “The AAU organization takes the safety and well-being of our athletes, coaches and officials very seriously.  Any such behavior is never tolerated at licensed AAU events and for those groups who fraudulently represent themselves as AAU, we will pursue all legal remedies.”

AAU has many offerings other event organizations do not – a comprehensive background screening process for adult members, coaches education through AAU’s partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance, emphasis on athlete safety with the AAU concussion policy and youth protection handbook plus AAU basketball provides clearly defined, standardized competition rules and regulations.

AAU is regularly and wrongly used to describe all non-scholastic travel basketball. Not all basketball events in the summer are run by the AAU organization.  Nonetheless, many such events are mischaracterized as AAU and mislabeled as AAU events when in fact they are not.

 FINDING A CLUB OR TEAM FOR YOUR ATHLETE

AAU does not have any club - they only have club members. We are unable to give out confidential information on our club members such as emails or contact information, therefore, we are unable to assist you in locating a club or team with confidential contact information. But we can suggest the following.  Check your local papers for clubs advertising tryouts.  Ask your athlete to ask their class mates who they participate with in AAU events.  Also you can go to the national web site,www.aausports.org.  They have instituted a program "My child wants to play AAU Sports" by which you can register your child and you can list your information on a site where coaches can access your contact information if they  are looking for athletes to participate in their program.  Independent clubs join AAU in order to participate in AAU sanctioned events and to adequately insure their athletes, coaches and practice facilities.  Each club sets its own policies regarding tryout, practice, fees, goals, etc.  Some clubs host open tryouts, others are local teams that are hand picked by their local recreation groups, and some may not choose to have tryouts at all.  AAU does not govern these clubs except when they are participating in AAU sanctioned events.  Therefore, when looking for a club you should ask questions that would allow you to select a club that meets your own needs and expectations

Thank you for your interest in participating in AAU events and a I hope that you will find a club that will meet your needs and expectations in helping further your athletes athletic career.
