Attention North Carolina AAU Football Clubs

The AAU National Football Committee has placed the North Carolina AAU Football Club on probation through the 2015-2016 season.  In addition two of the teams from this club have been declared  ineligible for any leagued based playoff or Championship.

The organization was placed on probation after an investigation of the rosters presented to the AAU National Chair, Keith Noll and the National office.  The National office found several documents had been falsified including an AAU membership.   It was also found that coaches did not have an AAU membership and falsified PCA certificates.  The date of completion of  some of the PCA certificates did not match what was on file with AAU or coaches did not have a valid date on file.

Please understand whether you are an independent or league based league your league is oversaw by the State Football Committee and must follow the following National AAU rules. 

1.  All coaches, board members,  team mom's and athletes MUST HAVE AN AAU MEMBERSHIP NO EXCEPTION.

2. All coaches and assistant coaches MUST complete Positive Coaches Alliance.   AAU periodically sends remainders that all coaches regardless of sport must complete Level I, II or II PCA.  Please not AAU PCA records go back 5 years.

3. All athletes must compete with proper age group and age is based an athletes age as of August 1st.  FOR INDEPENDENT LEAGUES ONLY Nationals at this time does not require DMV ID, however they require Birth Certificate for verification of age.  The State will continue to require DMV ID and all league based leagues must comply.

Any person or persons found in violation of any of these rules will receive sanctions directly from the State or National Football Committee.

Thank you
