The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and All World Sports have joined forces to bring youth baseball event operators and coaches an array of new resources, the two organizations announced this month during the annual American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Convention in Anaheim.
The combination of these two organizations provides teams and event operators access to a state of the art tournament management system, a free mobile application and a playbook to run development and exposure camps in partnership with some of the most respected names in the industry.
“We are both proud and excited to welcome All World Sports into the AAU family,” said Dr. Roger J. Goudy, President and CEO of the AAU. “This partnership will provide us with an opportunity to offer our members more quality AAU Baseball events nationwide.”
Event operators who run joint licensed AAU Baseball and All World Sports events will have the freedom and flexibility to run the event however they choose within a minimal framework all while receiving coverage from a multi-million dollar insurance program. All World Sports athletes now have the ability to compete in AAU national championship events, such as AAU Grand National Championships at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort and AAU National Championships at Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Florida, both first-class baseball facilities.
“All World Sports is very humbled and proud to be brought on as a partner of AAU Baseball,” said Ed Feldman, National Director of All World Sports. “We look forward to working with the AAU to grow their incredible brand nationally and enhance the youth baseball experience, utilizing both All World Sports and AAU Baseball resources.”
All World Sports will also complement the efforts of the newly established AAU West Coast Office to provide stronger support for existing AAU programs while working to drive several new AAU events out west.
The first All World Sports – AAU Baseball event will be the 2017 Winter Nationals in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dates will be forthcoming. Further details on future events and leagues will be available at www.aaubaseball.org.
