AAU National Team
The National AAU Taekwondo Program chooses four (4) separate teams; Cadet Team (10-11 year olds), Cadet Team (12-14 year olds), Junior Team (15-17 year olds), and Senior Team (18-32 year olds). The 10-11 year old Cadet Team and the 18-32 year old Senior Team are both chosen from those who capture the Gold Medal at the current year's National Championship in the 10-11 year old and 18-32 year old Black Belt Olympic Style Sparring divisions--all weights, male and female.
For the Cadet Team (12-14 year old) and Junior Team (15-17 year old), candidates are drawn from those Black Belts who place 1-4 at the current year's National Championship in Olympic Style Sparring in their respective divisions, all weights, male and female. These candidates are then invited to the annual Team Trials event historically held in September. This team trial competition is conducted according to a round robin format.
