What Is AAU?
AAU stands for the Amateur Athletic Union. This organization has become a staple in the sports industry, having programs in every major sports category. These teams are independently formed and can be comprised of any athletes that are asked to join the team. For example, AAU teams are not bound to the regulations and sanctions of a high school basketball team since the players do not have to live in the same district.
AAU was designed to support the overall performance of athletes, developing them to play at a higher level in the future. Sometimes these AAU basketball tournaments attract the attention of Division 1 college scouts and professional teams.
