Mission

To instill the “Pono...Do What is Right!” values through athletics.

Vision
Guide and direct youth in developing “pono” values & character by providing them with positive opportunities to grow as productive citizens through athletics and community service programs.

History
All Pono was legally incorporated in the State of Hawaii as an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2007.  The purpose of the All Pono organization is to promote the meaning of “Pono…Do What Is Right”. In June of 2004, Jon and Maile Viela lost their three year old son Jrew Kupono Viela to a tragic accident.  The Vielas have two other children Jrae (13) and Jai (5).  Jon and Maile felt it was important to turn this tragic event into something positive and that is how the All Pono organization was born.


All Pono services approximately 400 children ages 4-14
.
All Pono originally started with 2 softball teams in 2005, the organization since has grown to 13 softball teams, 9 baseball teams, and 10 soccer teams.  It takes approximately 150 volunteers of board members, coaches, administrators, bookkeepers, and team parents to run All Pono. All Pono also volunteers in the community with various non-profit organizations such as A Keiki’s Dream and the Salvation Army.

All PONO Policies

Approach The Coach

If you need to speak with your child's coach, please ask for an appointment.  Team Moms may be able to assist you with this.  Please do not approach a coach before, during, or right after a game.  Please do not approach a coach during any practice.  Coaching requires constant focus on the development and game skills of each child.  Every coach needs to take time to refocus before speaking with parents/guardians.   Thank you for honoring this policy.
  

Any issue related to your child or the team should be brought up with the head coach prior to contacting administrator or the board.

If any parent issues and/or inappropriate behavior affect the team well-being and coaches in any way, All Pono will excuse  your ‘ohana from the organization.

The ROOTS of Honoring the Game

  • Rules:  We refuse to bend the rules to win!
  • Opponents:  A worthy opponent is a gift that brings out our best!
  • Officials:  Show respect even when we disagree!
  • Teammates:  Never do anything to embarrass our team!
  • Self:  We live up to our own standards even when others don’t!
