Connecticut AAU Girls Basketball Championship Format Purpose: With the bulk of the more competitive teams in Connecticut District being appropriately matched at the D2 AAU National level, there is a need to create more opportunities for strong district teams to qualify at this level. A better competitive “fit” will promote stronger numbers at AAU national events. Method: The championship will be played as a Div 2 event with Championship and Classic double elimination brackets comparable to A and B brackets. The classifications are similar to those utilized at AAU Nationals. Teams that wish to attend a Div 1 AAU National will be submitted as Div 1 teams with permission of the National Chair based on their performance in the Connecticut District Championship. Individual teams will register to participate in the Championship Bracket or the Classic Bracket. If teams do not fairly select the bracket of appropriate strength, a pool format will be utilized in the future to ensure teams end up in the appropriate brackets. Qualifier: Since the event is a Div 2 qualifier, all teams are therefore qualified to attend a Div 2 AAU National in the age group/grade in which they participate. SATs: No games for 15s and 16s will be held on Saturday, May 2 prior to the 3:00 PM game slot. This will push at least one game to Sunday, May 3 in these age groups.
