Did You Know . . . #HOUSTONAAU
* AAU JOs are becoming a Houston tradition. The 2021 Games mark the third time in nine years that Houston has hosted the showcase event. It’s the largest national multi-sport event for youth in the United States.
* The AAU JOs debuted in the Bayou City in 2012 and drew 13,380 participants. It was a hit with city, spectators and participants and brought an economic impact of $35.4 million to the area
* Four years later, the 2016 AAU JOs drew 14,057 athletes to Houston for the 50th anniversary of the Games. The anniversary event brought an economic impact of $51.7 million to the area.
* This year’s games will be highlighted, as always by Track and Field, but athletes will also participate in Wrestling, Baton Twirling, Swimming, and Pickleball
* It’s a great way to volunteer and see some future stars! We had more than 1,000 hardworking volunteers turn out and help make 2012 and 2016 a success. We can’t do it without you.
