The Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation (SASF) is committed to promoting and supporting sports programs for youth, and young adults that develop character, leadership, citizenship, and sportsmanship. With this in mind the summer league program was uniquely built on a concept we call "the circle of life." It is our desire to teach, show, and instill in our youth a passion for community and giving back. Our summer league is an opportunity for our youth to enjoy the "sport" of basketball, develop new friendships, minimize the emphasis on "winning" and max out the idea of "family and fun." It is our dream that kids who play in the rookie and lower divisions will find the confidence to cycle back in, become a coach, and at some point a future leader who will keep the program going thus fulfilling "the circle of life." The majority of our youth participate in different levels of competitive sports that involve a high level of commitment, work, and dedication to become the best and to win. Many are in programs that work-out and train year round. The SASF program was consciously built to provide a positive experience and environment for both competitive and non competitive players.
How are we unique? The coaches are teens and college students from our community. Teams are drafted by the coaches to ensure a mixture of players from different organizations and skill level. Parents who usually sit on opposing sides now sit together to cheer for their children. Siblings run around. Grandparents come out to watch. New friendships are made at every age level and old friendships are renewed. For us, success is measured by the laughter, the hugs and handshakes, the adulation in the eyes of a 2nd grader when their 9th grade coach gives a high-five, the excitement and nervousness of a first time coach, the confidence from our youth referees...we are building our youth for the future...the circle of life. Our program is unique, not better, but we truly believe it's good for our kids. We hope you agree and that you will enjoy being part of our family.

Taiko Project, the electrifying taiko group from Los Angeles is performing again at the SASF to dazzle us on July 11, a Saturday evening with a delicious dinner available provided by the SASF Kitchen Crew. We hope the over 700 patrons that enjoyed the show in 2013 will help us spread the word to join the SASF in welcoming the return of Taiko Project. This high energy group that performed in the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards and around the world will put on another heart-pounding, exhilarating performance. Taiko Project will perform the program from their annual Rhythmic Relations concert usually held at the Hollywood Bowl. Maz Baba, Taiko Project’s Artistic Director mentioned that this year’s show will feature a more extensive variety of musical instrumentation including the koto, marimba, wooden flutes and singing from their new album, “Our Many Sides”. So please come join the SASF for another entertaining evening
Additionally this coming September 26, Saturday evening SASF presents another musical event featuring the contemporary jazz group Hiroshima. Last years concert was a hit with the 610 SASF supporters in attendance. Hopefully this year we can sellout the Crest Theater with the help of last year’s attendees spreading the word. Hiroshima had not been in Sacramento for 20 years and their return was a memorable one with a two hour performance playing songs from their 35 year career and the recent album, J-town Beats. Hiroshima has just put the finishing touches on a brand new album and will be performing songs again featuring the talents of Dr. Terry Steele and Yvette Nii. Dan Kuramoto and June Kuramoto, the founders of Hiroshima told me it was great to be back in Sacramento and was as enjoyable for them as it was for all our SASF supporters.
So please come join the SASF as we bring you performances by top Asian musical artists and help us continue fundraising for our SASF Community Center Phase Two expansion. We look forward to seeing everyone.
