AAU Programs

The American Athletic Union is a governing body that organizes and certifies AAU basketball programs throughout the United States. Most often programs offer fall (pre-season) programs as well as spring tournament play. AAU programs normally practice one to two times per week and then play in tournaments on the weekend. In the fall that usually encompasses 3-5 tournaments in October and November, whereas spring programs could cover 8+ tournaments and run from early March to mid June.

Program costs range from $300 to $800+ and normally include a uniform and shooting shirt. The rest of the cost goes to cover the program management, coaches and tournament fees.

Tryouts for fall programs start in mid-August and go until mid-September. Tryouts for spring programs can start as early as December, but most programs have tryouts in early January and run into February.

At one time the AAU program was only for the top players in the region, but more programs have been created such that there is now a place for all players and all abilities.
