Military Athletics is dedicated to giving back to youth in our communities. Our sports programs teach kids proper fundamentals while incorporating the military traditions of honor, integrity, courage and loyalty. We share our passion with kids, parents and local schools; Military Athletics represents the US military in a positive and encouraging atmosphere.
We are providing free athletic camps for our youth in San Antonio and surrounding areas. Our Athletic Camps teach attributes such as teamwork and leadership, while instilling hope in our next generation. We enlist the guidance and knowledge from Major Sports figures, Professional athletes and prominent speakers who engage with these youth and create a fun, safe and positive environment.
Military Athletics is also involved in addressing an epidemic regarding child obesity within our inner city communities. Our programs promote a healthier and holistic lifestyle and encourage our youth. Our volunteers, coaches, and staff, seek to inspire and share our Military training and lifestyles with inner city children and across the globe.
Nearly 27 million people call the state of Texas home, making it the second largest and most populous state in the U.S. Over its more than 260,000 square miles,* Texas landscapes flow from arid deserts to prairies, forests, and a rich coastline that feeds into the Gulf of Mexico.
Despite the state’s scenic landscapes, it bears a less flattering attribute: Texas is the first most obese state in the U.S. for children. More than 1 in 3 children and adolescents in Texas is obese, putting them at risk for serious health problems.
Additionally, the significant racial and ethnic disparities that exist in obesity prevalence among U.S. children are pronounced in Texas’s diverse communities: Nearly 39 percent of the state’s residents are Hispanic or Latino.*
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation, thanks to support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The JPB Foundation and Target, is working with communities throughout the state to make it easier for kids to lead healthier lives.
