HOW TO OBTAIN AN AAU CARD OR A NON-ATHLETIC AAU COACHES CARD:

AAU along with other organizations are requiring background checks for all coaches in order to coach in the corner.  Huskerland supports this by asking all coaches to obtain a non-athletic aau card.  You MUST pre-purchase this prior to the event because a background check can take several hours or several days.  Here is how to obtain a card:

Go to:  www.AAUWrestling.net

click on JOIN AAU

click on the green “register now” for a non-athletic AAU card OR athlete

You will be asked for your Social Security Number in order to do the background check (no background check for Athletes)

Once you submit the application, you will receive an e-mail confirming your request and the number will say *****Pending*****

Once the background check is complete, you will receive a new card with an AAU number on it.  Please print and show at Huskerland.

Registration online at:  www.TrackWrestling.com

$25 online rate, $30 walk-in rate.

*****Deadline for Online Registration is Friday by Noon*****

This event will be going on at the same time as Huskerland duals, but on opposite days.  So if you are competing at the duals, you will be able to compete at AAU state.  It’s a great deal and the best use of your trip to Kearney.  Remember, in order to qualify for the AAU Nebraska dual team, you must compete in AAU state and place 1st or 2nd.  Registration is open now on Track wrestling.
