FFAS takes part in after school program

Students over at Leone Midkiff could not wait to go out for the soccer portion of their program. After briefing the more than 40 students on what the program was about, the ASG Governor’s Office representative Denise Fa’amasino asked the students what was next and they all shouted “soccer!”
Actually it was the homework session but they were able to contain their excitement for the 40-minute period before coming outside for the physical health part involving soccer.
The After School Program was officially opened by the First Lady at Matatula on Friday, Nov. 12, 2010 and kicked off on Monday, Nov. 29 at four schools — Leone Midkiff, Tafuna, Matatula and Le’atele. These schools will have their programs on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Two other schools started theirs on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 — Alataualua/Taputapu and Alofau. These schools will have their programs on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The launching of the program at the schools coincides with the arrival of FFAS shipment of cones, balls, bibs and shin guards ordered for this purpose.
FFAS technical development staff Ruben Luvu and Naomi Oney are heading the program for the association with the help of Terrence ‘Pati’ Sinapati, Lemusa Alatasi, David Crichton, Salesa Ah-San, Richard Donovan, Talalelei Fa’alavaau, Junior Mikaele and Daru Taumua.
FFAS is given one hour and in some schools that do not have a field FFAS personnel showed the students cool clips of soccer tricks, highlights and tips on how to pass the ball, control it and shoot.
During outside activities the FFAS coaches create fun activities for the participants to promote their health and the sport of soccer.
