Background Screening (Adult Members Only)

Why a background screening?

The application screening process will impact all adult athlete/non-athlete applicants. Adult members will be screened yearly when applying for a membership as part of the application process. Applications will not be approved instantaneously and applicants must consent to a background screening. Each adult (athlete and non-athlete) applicant must complete their own application. Depending on the results, the applicant may be required to submit additional information (estimated turnaround time could be as long as 5-10 business days). You will not be able to participate in any AAU practices or authorized events until you have received your membership. Only youth athlete memberships will process instantly.

For more details on the background screening process and answers to frequently asked questions, check out our Be Prepared page.
