Mentoring

San Antonio Youth Sports

The San Antonio Parks and Recreation department offers numerous opportunities for our youth to get active and fit by participating in sports such as T-ball, volleyball, basketball and soccer. Youth sports leagues are offered in various seasons year round. To sign-up, parents are asked to call the community center to confirm which sport and age divisions they are hosting. Parents should then register online or visit the center to complete a registration form and pay the registration fee. The $10 fee (per child), includes a team shirt. Hours at the participating community centers are Monday through Thursday, 2 to 9 p.m., Friday, 2 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Building Boys

The BuildingBoys Manifesto
We believe:

  • There’s no such thing as a “typical boy”
  • All boys can succeed
  • Asking a 5-year- old boy to sit still for most of the day is ridiculous
  • Playing with sticks, swords and toy guns is absolutely OK
  • Boys cry too
  • Understanding boys is the first step toward effectively parenting and educating boys
  • Boys’ interests should be respected
  • Boys deserve the facts about sex and relationships
  • Most adults are well-meaning
  • Building boys will improve the world
