FWIW...


And its a very nitpicky item...but those games arent AAU, so they arent governed by any national body telling them what to do. Travel ball or travel team is the more appropriate term, but AAU is the common term.

The difference being that AAU would require a national body to say "these games are ok" whereas these tournaments are independently run, so they only really answer to themselves.

I suspect youll see some pop up here and there, but no coaches will be allowed to any of them. It is literally just a cash grab.
