Numerous volunteers give countless hours in coaching young athletes and in directing and hosting events.  There is an inherent risk involved in any athletic endeavor whether as an athlete, coach, bench personnel, administrator, instructor, manager, official, team leader, tournament director, volunteer, spectator, parent or event operator.  The AAU has addressed many of those inherent risks through a comprehensive insurance program that is second to none in the youth sport industry.

The AAU’s insurance program is a benefit of membership and extends to those who are members of the AAU (athletes, non-athletes, club) or affiliated with the AAU through its members.
