AAU Partners with NFF
In 2019, the AAU became the first founding partner of the National Youth Sports Fund, an endowment managed by the National Fitness Foundation, the only congressionally chartered non-profit focused on youth sports, health, and fitness in the United States.
In conjunction with the NFF, the AAU administers the Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP), a program aimed at modernizing fitness education in school physical education classrooms by emphasizing student health, goal setting, and personal progress.
“We're extremely proud to partner with AAU on the Presidential Youth Fitness Program," said Clay Walker, Executive Director of the National Fitness Foundation. "When AAU took over the implementation of the PYFP program at the start of the 2019-20 school year, AAU became the only organization in the country to manage in-school and out-of-school youth sports and fitness programs.”
