AAU Tournaments & Extending Club Season
. Some of you have expressed an interest in extending our club season to keep the girls going. Our USAV regular season ends the second week of April. There are other organizations out there that continue to host events all they way to June. The AAU is a different organization that hosts several events throughout the year. This year’s AAU nationals (June 18-26) will be held in Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL at the ESPN Wide World of Sports…. I know…. far far away. Well the good thing about it is we do not have to qualify to play in it, but the worst thing about it is it will cost to play in it. We can come up with options to try to raise funds and or if you guys are comfortable paying for it then take that route.
There are other things involved to even get this going. They are but not limited to: -
- Becoming AAU members. I believe this is $14 per player
- Finding accommodation for all of us. A good idea would be like to rent a house/condo
- Travel expenses
- Coaches expenses
Other options that would keep the girls going would be to continue having a one night practice a week for a small fee.

I’m going to possibly have a meeting this weekend with y’all to discuss this.
