We put ideas into action!

Afghan American Sports Association (AASA) provides the necessary resources that are essential for physical and mental growth.  AASA is well known for hosting the very popular Memorial Day Soccer tournament. The tournament features Afghan-American athletes from all across North America. Spectators reach a number in the thousands each year and is a highly anticipated event for many people. In addition to our annual tournament, we have new and exciting projects currently in development; such as a Community Youth Center and a Youth Soccer Camp. These projects are essential in providing our future athletes the tools necessary to succeed.


AASA is always looking for help from the community and from our youth!  Need to put in volunteer time for your school?  Looking to be more active in the North American Afghan community?  Contact us to volunteer!
