2014 Summer Basketball League
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.
Also, for you mini hoopers, who want to learn some basic skills, we have our Basic Hoops in August! Check back soon for applications!

Bean writes her own music, personally describing it as “mainstream pop with a bit of the old 50s and 60s retro vibe.” Although Bean is just 22 years old, she has gone through a lot in her life and through her songs Bean aims to connect with fans that are living the joys, sorrows and dreams that everyone faces. Bean is especially passionate about empowering young people to embrace who they are, find their inner-confidence, and reach their full-potential which she does through her song-writing and her connections with her fan community. In January of 2014 radio stations across the country started spinning her single “Cops and Robbers.”
