BE PREPARED: Continued Background Screenings for AAU Adult Members

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.

    • The application screening process will impact each adult athlete/non-athlete applicant. Adult members will be screened yearly when applying for a membership as part of the membership process. Applications will not be approved instantaneously, and applicants must consent to a background screening. Each adult/non-athlete applicant must complete his/her own application. Depending on the results, the applicant may be required to submit additional information Projected turnaround time could be 5-10 business days. You will not be able to participate in any AAU practices or authorized events until you have received your membership. Youth Athlete memberships will process instantly.

Club Administrators:

  • The Non Athlete or Adult Athlete membership will need to be processed and accepted before the club membership can be processed. The Club membership needs to be processed before you can print your verification of insurance, request third party practice certificate or apply for an event sanction. Any Clubs that have a multi-year membership will be moved to a pending status until the club contacts complete their membership screening process.
