About Allen Sports Association

ASA was organized on November 24, 1976 and has been recognized as an exempt organization under section 501(c) (3) of the internal revenue code since March of 1982. 

The purpose for the creation of this Corporation was to operate, provide and promote a year round program for supervised recreational sports. To also provide an opportunity for those adults who desire to voluntarily coach, supervise and instruct others in recreational sports. And to promote the highest ideals of fellowship and sportsmanship with the specific purpose of making the Community a better place to live.

The Allen Sports Association is made up of an Executive Board that handles the business of the association and the Sport Boards that handle the sports of the Association.  Both volunteer association boards are supported by the ASA paid staff.

There are six committees of the Association whose purpose is to assist the Executive Director in carrying out various activities of ASA.  Those committees are the Finance Committee, Ethics Committee, Public Relations Committee, Fund Raising Committee, Competition Committee and  Technology committee.
