Q. What is an AAU Club and how do I benefit from AAU Membership?
A. Club Membership is optional though necessary to receive AAU mailings, event notification, voting rights in AAU elections, club practice insurance and to sanction AAU tournaments that you host. As a club you will also receive a Membership Certificate. Please check with the Iowa AAU office for specific fee schedule. Please note the Club Membership is not valid unless you have at least two individual registrations associatied with the club.
Q. What is a Sanction?
A. Sanctions are mandatory if you plan to host an AAU event. The sanction form must be filed with the Iowa AAU office prior to hosting your event (30 days is sufficient). Please check with the Iowa AAU office for specific fee schedule on sanctions. Instructions for filing a sanction are on the first page of the sanction form. Your sanction will be approved by the Iowa AAU office and a sanction number issued at the same time.
Q. What is a Request for a Third Party Certificate of Liability Insurance?
A. This particular form should be filed with the Iowa AAU office if you have been requested to by the facility or venue you will be using for practices or events. We do charge a nominal administrative fee to process the certificate for you. The Iowa AAU office will request your certificate from American Specialties Insurance Services and it will be returned to the club contact unless otherwise designated. Please allow 30 days to complete this process.
