The AAU oversees about 30 sports programs for all ages nationwide, including major sports like football, basketball and baseball to bocce ball, baton twirling and competitive jump rope. It says 500,000 athletes and 50,000 volunteers participate in its programs.
AAU President Louis Stout said on Wednesday that the organization has established two independent task forces established to review child safety protocols, policies and procedures. The groups _ focused on youth protection and adult volunteering screening _ are expected to recommend any changes to AAU’s current policies by February.
