SAN ANTONIO – The Sports Library of San Antonio I play! after school Videos teaching the basics of soccer, track and field, basketball and volleyball are now available on the KSAT Kids section of KSAT.com.
The videos are being released as part of a new partnership between local nonprofit San Antonio Sports and KSAT 12.
KSAT Kids will offer a full instructional video library and provide fun ways for kids to learn and practice their skills across the four sports.
Also available is the Junior Alpha Warrior Series, which features essential training videos that teach balance, flexibility, and core strength.
The videos contain expert instruction from professional athletes and can be used by parents and coaches alike.
They are designed so that athletes can replicate the techniques at home using equipment and items they find around the house.
“San Antonio Sports’ mission is to transform our community through the power of sport. Sport has the power to transform individuals, neighborhoods and entire communities. Research shows there is a connection between children participating in sports and adults experiencing professional and personal success,” said Carolyn Wheat, public relations manager for the local organization.
The videos are directed by athletes at the top of their sport:
Soccer unit is led by former MLS player Michael Lahoud
Follow exercises from US track and field athlete Kendra Chambers
basketball videos from former WNBA All-Star Sophia Young-Malcom
Volleyball session from five-time Olympian Danielle Scott
The Alpha Warrior Jr. unit from American ninja warriors Kevin Klein and Tawnee Leonardo.
The professionally developed instructional videos were initially made available to local physical education teachers as a free resource for distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, while helping to meet the need for quality physical education instruction.
“These videos are a way to level the playing field and we’re grateful to KSAT 12 for sharing them on KSAT Kids so more kids can experience the power of sport,” said Wheat.
You can find the instructional videos in the KSAT Kids section of our website and in our free KSAT Kids newsletter. The clips can be viewed weekdays at 9:00 am on KSAT 12 on GMSA.
