When asked about his role in AASB, Melvin McDonald of French Valley stated, "I serve as both the President and a coach for AASB. I enjoy being able to help the youth that come through our program both by running the organization and providing hands-on coaching."

At AASB, the goal of the organization is helping youth. All children benefit from being exposed to athletics, which teach them how to work hard, dedicate themselves, and commit to any challenge.

AASB is open to all students, regardless of gender, race, or ability. Under Melvin McDonald of French Valley
