Athletes Helping Athletes (AHA) has been designing and delivering educational programs for students, athletes, coaches, officials and administrators for 30 years to help families, schools and communities address complex social issues. Since 1984, more than 600,000 students, children, coaches and educators in the U.S. and Canada have benefited from AHA programs that promote positive life lessons and a healthy sports environment. AHA is committed to highlighting the positive influence that sports can have on society.
Manhasset's chapter of Athletes Helping Athletes is a program called S.A.L.T., the Student Athlete Leadership Team. This team emphasizes the positive elements and innumerable life lessons that we learn through our sports experiences. Student athletes that are selected for the team go to three training sessions at Molloy College and then push into the sixth grade classes at Munsey Park and Shelter Rock schools to teach lessons about building character, sportsmanship and making positive, healthy decisions such as choosing to be a substance free student athlete.
