Junior Silver Stars is a socially themed recreational basketball league for girls managed by KSN and conducted by local recreation centers during the summer. The league is sponsored by the San Antonio Silver Stars but is similar in requirements and benefits to the Spurs Youth Basketball League. The Silver Stars provide the funds for coaches’ training, gym signage and other materials. The program was not conducted in 2010 or 2011 but is expected to return in 2012.
2ball is a game in which two-person teams shoot for 60 seconds from numbered spots on the floor using a single ball. If a shot is made, the team receives points based on the value of the spot. The contest was originally developed as a basketball skills program by the NBA but KSN and the Spurs conducted city-wide competitions for several years during basketball season.
Night Hoops is a socially themed basketball league similar to the Spurs Youth Basketball League conducted for older teens on Friday and Saturday evenings. The program contains elements of the Spurs Youth Basketball League but also includes the requirement that teams attend special workshops that address social issues and smart decision-making.
Abuse Prevention Seminars were workshops designed to show how abuse occurs in youth sports and what measures leaders need to take to avoid abuse from occurring. The seminars created for youth league administrators and boards but can also be presented to volunteer coaches and parents.
First Steps Sports Development is a program to teach sports fundamentals to 3-5 year olds in a non-competitive environment before they participate in youth sports leagues. A parent is required to participate with the child and is taught fundamentals together with their child. The program is typically conducted for an hour once a week for six weeks.
