August 13, 2021 - AAU BAT RULES
13u (7th graders) - No bat size restrictions, however if your player is in the market for a bat we'd highly suggest -5 in order to help with the transition to -3 bbcor which will be what 14u (8th graders) are required to use.
14u (8th graders) - ALL Players will be required to use -3 bbcor bat. If you are looking, we'd suggest Play it Again Sports or comparable reseller, as you can find bbcor bats for reasonable prices usually under $100.
