All Non-athletes/coaches are responsible to see that their team meets all eligibility requirements.
The AAU is a grade based organization. Each grade division consists of a 24 month age window which determines an athletes’ participation in that division. If an athletes’ age is outside the 24 month window for their grade, the athlete must play up to the grade division that is normal and customary for their age. If an athlete is in any grade above what is normal and customary for their age, an athlete may play down provided they meet the established criteria listed in the chart below.
