The AAU Junior Olympic Games are known as the largest national multi-sport event for youth in the United States. It has become the showcase event of the AAU Sports Program. Since its beginning in Washington, D.C., the AAU Junior Olympic Games have been conducted in 19 states and 30 cities across the United States. "There's nothing junior about it" has become the theme of the AAU Junior Olympic Games while growing to over 16,000 participants in over 20 sports. The Games popularity has exploded to now represent all 50 states and several United States territories.

The 2021 Games mark the third time in nine years that Houston has hosted the showcase event.  This year’s games will be highlighted, as always by Track and Field, but athletes will also participate in Wrestling, Baton Twirling, Swimming, and Pickleball.  Our young pickleball athletes are representing the North Texas-Rockwall AAU Chapter (CLUB #543A8X).

ABOUT THE AAU:

The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) is one of the largest- non-profit volunteer sports organizations in the country. Founded in 1888 to establish standards and uniformity in sports, the AAU was the founding member of organized amateur athletics in the United States and prepared athletes to compete in the Olympics up through the late 1970’s (when the USOC was founded). In the 1980’s, the AAU re-focused its efforts to offer grassroots sport programming to youth across the United States. As a multi-sport organization, the AAU is dedicated exclusively to the promotion and development of amateur sports programs. The AAU philosophy of “Sports For All, Forever” is now shared by nearly 700,000 members and 150,000 volunteers across 41 sports programs and 55 U.S. districts.
