About Us

The United East Athletics Association (UEAA) was established in 1976 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, self-funded by a group of sports enthusiasts. Its initial goal was to offer recent immigrant youths and youths from the Chinatown area constructive sports programs to help them develop physically and mentally, and integrate into mainstream America. As the organization grew, the UEAA was recognized as a solid component of the Chinese community, addressing the developmental needs of our young people. With the community’s support, the UEAA expanded from strictly sports-oriented programs to include community services and activities, such as summer youth recreational/educational programs, and hosting cultural events centered on Chinese traditions and arts.

As the Chinese immigrant population increases, families face significant challenges, including language barriers, overcrowded schools, a lack of social services for youths and senior citizens, scarce job opportunities, and more. At UEAA, our goal is to reach out and assist this community by providing programs that enhance their quality of life. Through these initiatives, both the physical and mental energies of our youths and adults can be properly channeled to meet life’s challenges. For instance, in a society rich in technological advancements, the UEAA provides educational programs like computer literacy and training for youths and adults to help them maintain their academic requirements and acquire essential skills to stay marketable in the workplace. We believe that by providing positive reinforcement and knowledge in our community, the citizens will eventually pave their own way for the future.
