2017 AAU Junior Olympics will be held in Detroit. We do offer a bus/Hotel package. Pricing each year varies. Children will not be allowed to travel alone on the bus trip. You must have an assigned chaperon for your child. We normally will place 4 to a room. An example would be a Mother and her daughter are going on the bus, she can be assigned two additional girls. It is each parents/guardians responsibility to work out the details if they are not able to attend the bus trip with their child. We recommend planning this in advance to make sure your child has a chaperon. The goal is to have 4 assigned to a room and we need everyone help to accomplish this.
