How is AAU Nationals different?
* It is a tournemnt in which any team can play. Not only that, but in AAU y
* You can choose to play in any division you wish: the powerful, the good, the ok, or the "We're here on vacation" division.
* The tournament is held in Orlando every year, so that's fun!



* Since I can remember, it's been held in Orlando Florida. 
* In 2010, the Roanoke 17's attended. 
* In 2011, Roanoke United 17's and 15's participated.  In 2012, Roanoke United 17's participated.
A team's results are usually better than their results at Junior Nationals, or even one of the National Qualifiers.
