WHERE YOU BEGIN

WHERE YOU BEGIN HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH WHERE YOU FINISH!

We’ve been raising champions for more than a century.  Since 1888, the AAU has set the standard for amateur sports in the United States.  ‘Sports For All, Forever’ has been our focus and drive for 123 years and counting.  It is more than a motto – it is our vision for sports in the United States and throughout the world.  And today we are proud to host more sporting events for more age divisions in more cities than any other organization in the world.

However, the AAU is not just about sports.  For every athlete who attains professional sports status after the AAU, there are hundreds more who apply their AAU experience elsewhere.  What our participants gain is much more valuable than athletic glory, much more important than any athletic achievement.  Through participation in AAU sports programs athletes acquire the mental activity, emotional maturity, and social tools necessary to succeed in the classroom and in the world beyond.

We are raising tomorrow’s leaders on today’s playgrounds.  No matter your sport, age, or experience level, there is a place for you in the AAU. 

Congratulations on becoming a part of this tradition. 

And remember, where you begin has everything to do with where you finish!
