Impact statement

Since it’s founding in 1991 Kids Sport Network has been dedicated to the enhancement of children’s sports in San Antonio and throughout South Texas. KSN provides education and support to volunteer coaches, parents and administrators through conducting a variety of special events and programs.  In the fall of 2011, Slam Dunk for Life, a former 501 (c) 3 organization became a KSN program. Since then, SDFL has provided over 400 of at-risk youth with tuition-free basketball camps. Among the most prominent of services provided to the community, is KSN Coaches Training. KSN provides coaches education in many different sports for numerous youth sports organizations. KSN coaches’ education program is focused on making volunteer youth sport coaches aware of their responsibilities to provide for the psychological, emotional and physical needs of children on their team. In 2011, the KSN Coaches’ Education Program certified 4,047 volunteer coaches. KSN, with support and funding from the Spurs Silver and Black Give Back have managed the Spurs Youth Basketball League (SYBL), formally the Drug-Free League, since the inception of the league in 1991. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and KSN president/founder, Frank Martin established the SYBL as a way of promoting recreational youth basketball in economically disadvantaged areas of San Antonio. In 2011, SYBL provided opportunities for 17,510 players in 16 south Texas cities and 62 different gyms. In addition to the multitude of support services, KSN provides youth sports leagues the opportunity to conduct cost effective background checks on their volunteers and staff that are comprehensive and easy to administer. Other KSN managed events and programs include the annual San Antonio High School All-Star Football Game, Summer Golf Camps, Volunteer Management, Resource Library and website, and the annual Charity Golf Classic.
