AAU BASEBALL 14U, UNDERCLASSMEN, AND UPPERCLASSMEN NATIONALS

This event has moved to Sarasota, Florida this year and begins on July 19. Games will be played on professional baseball fields at the Buck O'Neill Baseball Complex, spring training home of the Baltimore Orioles. The Championship game for each age division will be held at Ed Smith Stadium which is the Orioles' spring training stadium on July 24.

Teams will be treated for Opening Ceremonies to a beach party on Siesta Key Beach, ranked the #1 beach in America! With steel drums in the background, they'll have dinner and then be free to do what teenagers do at the beach: volleyball, football, Frisbee, swimming, hacky sack, soccer, meeting the other teams, etc.


The following morning it will be all business as there is a National title to earn.

Good luck to the teams from Texas, Ontario, Canada, Michigan, Connecticut, Florida, Colorado, Massachusetts, Georgia, New Jersey, Alabama, Puerto Rico, Ohio, and Virginia!
2014 PRIMARY NATIONALS RECAP

With over 550 athletes ages 5-8 (and some even younger!) coming from all over America as well as Puerto Rico, the 2014 AAU Primary Nationals saw incredible talent over the two-day event, July 5-6.

From the triathlon (long jump, shot put, and either a 55m or 100m sprint), to hurdles, to field events, to all distances of running events, these kids showed their fearlessness and tenacity in every event they entered.

2014 AAU SCHOLASTIC DUALS RECAP

1. Community DI: Dakota Wrestling Nation (46-16) over Avon WC.
2. Community DII: Yorktown Tigers (38-22) over Oak Harbor Rockets.
3. District All-Star: Young Guns Black (37-21) over Iowa Black.

And a BIG shoutout to anyone who took home the Outstanding Wrestler, Technically Superior, or Sportsmanship awards! What an honor!

AAU HIGH SCHOOL SULLIVAN FINALIST JUMPS TO SUCCESS

Mason Rogers had quite a year for himself. He graduated from high school, got accepted into Stanford, had an internship at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and won a $2,500 scholarship from the AAU High School Sullivan Award. His latest achievement, earning the High School Sullivan Award Scholarship, was a perfect way to prove that all of his hard work in not only his academics, but also his athletic career, has paid off.

“I am excited and pleasantly surprised,” Rogers said about winning the award. “It is an honor to be recognized by the AAU like this, and I am glad that the time and effort I put into jump rope have merited this award.”

As a student, Rogers holds a 4.1+ GPA while taking all AP classes, except for his Honors Spanish I, II, and III courses, in his junior and senior years. He earned the Harvard Book Award for Outstanding High School Juniors and the Parker Award for Outstanding High School Athlete. He is a National Merit Scholar, AP National Scholar and Cason Scholar and was on the All-County Math Team. As mentioned previously, he did his senior year internship as Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, which will undoubtedly give him a leg up on his peers at Stanford and help him achieve his future career goals.
