Minnesota AAU Girls Basketball is proud to offer a state championship tournament format that protects teams from unbalanced competition and determines which teams will play in the Division I or Division II & III Championship brackets. Our two weekend event provides Super Pool play competition the 1st weekend in May that will place teams in Div I or II brackets for championship play the 3rd weekend in May. Our Prelim Tournament places the top 6-8 seeded teams into 2 Super Pools, A & B. Pools C through G are seeded traditionally beginning with the 9th seed being the top team in Pool C. The top 1 or 2 teams in Pools C through G earn spots in the Division I Championship bracket. The remaining teams are placed in the Division II or III Championship bracket according to their finish in Prelim pool play. This format protects weaker teams from the powerhouse teams while still providing all teams an opportunity to make it into the Div I Championship bracket. However, if your team does not qualify for the Division I bracket, your team still has earned the opportunity to be an AAU Champion, playing in the Division II or III championship bracket. In 2018 we will have a Div III Champ Bracket in our 7th grade level. Come out to the AAU State Tournament and see the best girls basketball players/teams Minnesota has to offer. See you in the gym.
