About AAU Basketball

Over the last few decades, AAU has become the main breeding ground for high school talent to get noticed prior to the college/pro level. Although heavily criticized by leading coaches and players for focusing more on “winning” rather than player development, there is no doubt that AAU gives the opportunity for talented players on otherwise mediocre high school teams to form “super teams” with players from other schools and compete against the best competition across the USA.

The AAU operates in more than 34 sports, under which it conducts over 30,000 age division events and 250 national championships across its 56 district associations.
