On March 25, 2020 the AAU posted the following: The AAU has decided to extend the temporary suspension of licensed AAU events through April 15th.
The health and well-being of athletes, coaches, and their families is always the AAU’s top priority. Along with the rest of the world, we have continued to closely monitor the developing COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) situation.
After reviewing the latest CDC guidelines and in consultation with local officials, the AAU has decided to extend the temporary suspension of licensed AAU events through April 15th. This is a decision that the AAU organization did not make lightly but one we strongly feel is in the best interest of everyone involved in AAU events.
These are unprecedented times that have called for unprecedented measures. Nonetheless, we know this is the right decision. We must continue to do our part to keep our communities safe and healthy until such a time that we resume AAU event programing. It is truly our hope that we can get back to running AAU events in the very near future after this extension. We will continue to consult with local officials and health experts to ensure that the safety of AAU athletes, coaches, and their families is not compromised.
Since 1888, the AAU has been the industry leader in the amateur sports marketplace. Moving forward, we remain committed to providing the very best athletic opportunities to all who play AAU sports and will continue to provide updates as additional information becomes available. Thank you for your continued participation in AAU.
We will continue to monitor and make a decision about how we will proceed with the remainder of the season.
