The Amateur Athletic Union has added cricket to its sports programming.
From the AAU website:
Having Cricket approved as a National sport by the AAU allows USACA [United States of America Cricket Association] youth cricketers access to National programs offered by the AAU.
USACA will now work closely with the AAU to develop programs that will benefit players, coaches and administrators across the country primarily at the youth level.
