IMPORTANT AAU MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION! Mandatory Background Screening
The AAU is recognized as an industry leader in the world of youth sports, and the safety of our participants is a #1 priority. Join us in continuing to protect America’s youth with background checks for all adult members. The AAU is continuing the BE PREPARED campaign launched August 15, 2012.
Do I have to pay extra for the background check?
There is no extra fee. Your background screening is included in your membership fee.
Do I purchase my membership first?
Yes, you must purchase your membership first. Your background screen must be completed before you are assigned a membership ID. You will be required to enter a membership ID to purchase the club membership.
Will I be background screened yearly?
Yes. It is part of the membership application.
I have a background check done through my Job, club, or Governing Body every year. Can you use that information?
No. Federal Law does not allow organizations to share background screening information. We cannot use any other source or data for our background screening process. You must go through our screening process. The same process must be used for all our adult members.
I am an adult athlete and I do not participate with youth athletes, do I still have to have the background screening done?
Yes. All adult members must be screened. No exceptions. The AAU seeks to provide a safe environment for all members.
If my membership is not approved what happens?
You can contact the AAU Compliance Department at 407-934-7200 for further instructions.
Who sees my information and is my private information secure?
