In 2000 ASA Entertainment created the ASA High School Tour (Tour), a traveling action sports exhibition that visits cities across the United States supporting the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. It was an exciting way to raise awareness amongst young adults about the harmful effects of using tobacco. This spring, the ASA High School Tour, in partnership with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the U.S. Marine Corps, brings the world’s best action sports athletes back to high schools across the country to show kids that it’s cool to be tobacco-free.
The ASA High School Tour features the world’s top professional skateboarders, BMX riders and inline skaters performing mind-boggling aerial stunts on a state-of-the-art half-pipe in front of tens of thousands of students each year. The pro athletes and tour emcee speak passionately to teens about the importance of refraining from tobacco use in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. With its positive peer-to-peer anti-smoking message and incredible "wow factor", the ASA High School Tour has become one of the top attractions at schools across America.
Since the Tour’s inception twelve years ago, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids important messaging has reached more than one million students. This year, the Tour's high-impact assembly program will visit 100 high schools in 20 major cities, staying in each market for 5 days. Please join in our mission to help make every kid in America tobacco-free!
We packed up from Orange on Friday after the show, and after a quick lunch stop, made the 5 and a half hour drive north to Dallas. Last week of the tour. Everyone was more than ready to get out of southeast Texas, and seeing the skyline of Dallas was a very welcome addition. Our shows this week take us to South Grand Prairie, Northwest, Birdville, Diamond Hill Jarvis, and Red Oak High Schools.
We have the same crew this week again. We have Anthony Furlong (skateboard), Eito Yasutoko…Continue
We packed up from Houston and made the short drive east to our next destination. Since it was a short drive, that meant a much needed weekend off for the crew. We thought we were going to be in Beaumont, but as it turns out, we were actually staying 30 miles east in a little town called Orange. Orange is a very small place nestled on the Texas/Louisiana border, right off interstate 10. There is not a whole lot to do in Orange, but we made the best of it.
Our shows this week were…Continue
Another week down, and another trip to the airport. It seems like every weekend on this tour, I have had to run off on Friday after the shows and get myself to an airport to head off to another show or contest. That wasn't the case this weekend. I did have to go the airport, but not rush there after the show. Myself and the crew were able to spend a relaxing Friday night before flying out Saturday to the next stop of the tour in Houston. We spent Friday night watching game 7 of the World…Continue
Another week in the books and once again we start heading south. This time it's to the Sooner state, and the town of Tulsa Oklahoma. It was a 6 hour drive for the crew, and a couple of us had to fly in from LA because we had a skateboard contest over the weekend. We had a last minute cancellation on Monday, so it was going to be a short week.
Our shows this week took place at Collinsville, Nathan Hale, Catoosa, and Skiatook High Schools. We have the same athlete line up as last week,…Continue
