All AAU National Championships, including the Grand Nationals, offer a 7-game guarantee. Teams compete in the first round of pool play in pools of four. After the first round of pool play is completed, the first- and second-place teams advance to the Diamond division, the remaining teams advance to the Gold division. The second round of pool play determines the team's seeding in the final round: single-elimination. There are no "classic" or "consolation" brackets. The Diamond and the Gold divisions are considered two separate tournaments based on teams' exhibited skills.
All athletes and teams must be a member of the AAU for participation in the Grand National Championships and Super Showcase events. To become an AAU member, visit aausports.org and click on JOIN AAU or call the AAU National Headquarters at 407-934-7200.
