Kinetic Kids is a non-profit organization in San Antonio that provides sports and recreation programs for children with special needs. Programs are adapted and supervised by physical and occupational therapists. Kinetic Kids utilizes one-on-one volunteers to assist children in participating in sport and helping them reach their highest potential while maintaining a safe environment for all. Volunteers attend a volunteer orientation and receive sport specific training. Coaches/instructors lead the class and teach volunteers what/how to work on specific skills with children. Kinetic Kids does NOT have our own location. We utilize existing facilities and fields around San Antonio, Schertz & New Braunfels ie: swimming pools, church & university gymnasiums, little league baseball fields, etc...
