Long term, ASA projects aim to provide affordable after-school athletic opportunity at the lower school levels; I"m currently using program service fees and community support to subsidize fees at elementary schools on island. If students and families had access to affordable after-school athletic programs, I believe they will be more inclined to keep their child active and promote a lifestyle that is healthy and active. Just as important, students will have a positive place to go to after school as opposed to potentially getting into unsupervised activity.
Short term, ASA is creating small soccer clinics at multiple elementary schools and remote locations; building the model and foundation step by step. ASA currently has after-school soccer programs for grades K-3 at Aikahi, Enchanted Lake, Kainalu, and Lanikai Elementary schools for the public sector. A soccer program for grades K-6 at Kamehameha Kapalama Campus has our largest student base.
For the 2014/15 school year, ASA wants to provide an after-school soccer program for a new school to join our goal to promote a lifestyle that is healthy and active.
