All-Stars Newsletter - January 2022

Aloha ASAS Hawaii ʻOhana,

The new year is in full swing and so are After-School All-Stars Hawaii programs. After a restful holiday break, we are excited to be back on campus with our students. With our programs spanning eleven schools and two islands, ASAS Hawaii has made a commitment to playing an active part in the communities we are located in.

We work with our host schools to find creative ways for students to give back to their communities through service learning projects. We encourage our student leaders to reach out to the organizations and businesses in their backyards and to seek partnerships with ASAS. Students connect with their local leaders to share ideas about how they can make a difference, and their vision for the future. 

We’ve also been fortunate to have individuals and organizations in our communities reach out and provide opportunities for our students. We hope to be a part of Hawaii's community for a long time and hope you'll join us in supporting the students we serve.

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!

Sports Clinics

ASAS' Sports as a Hook program initiative connects health and fitness to character building and leadership skills. ASAS recognizes that students can achieve their personal best in school when they are equipped with the tools to lead healthy and active lifestyles. While ASAS already offers sports programming, we seek opportunities to provide more intentional skill building for our students.

The ʻIolani High School girl’s soccer team and coaches recently partnered with ASAS to offer a soccer clinic for students. Students learned new drills to practice during program, and the soccer team and coaches encouraged students to work hard in school and on the field.

All-Star students also had an opportunity to attend a volleyball clinic hosted by Kendra Ham, a member of the University of Hawaii Wahine Volleyball team. She shared tips about how to improve their game, and also about her experience as a college athlete.
