A youth member becomes attached to a club member when he/she competes with that club in any AAU sanctioned event (practice not included). An athlete may attach to additional clubs if he/she participates in additional sports. An attached youth member may transfer to another club in the same sport if the representative of the club to which an athlete is attached signs a release form permitting an immediate transfer. (Athletes released under this provision are subject to National Championship eligibility restrictions as adopted by National Sport Committees.) [Added 10/07]. If the youth member has not competed in any AAU sanctioned events in that Sport for a period of sixty (60) days, a release form is not needed and the athlete may transfer immediately.
The AAU National Office is happy to provide FREE Coaches' Education for all AAU Non-Athletes. This exciting program is administered by Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), using their Double-Goal Coach online courses. A Double-Goal Coach has two goals: the first is to win, but the second, more important goal, is to teach life lessons through sports.
