Alamo KidSports is a motor skills development company that offers soccer, basketball and baseball classes for children 18 months to 6 years old. All sports of Alamo KidSports are non-competitive, and are not affiliated with a sport club or league although we do offer our curriculum through some non-profit organizations and sports clubs. Except for the programs for 5 year olds and up which is through the SoccerTouch, Hoopster, Sluggers and FitPlay programs, we do not scrimmage during classes, but rather focus on games to excite children in sports and work on the FUNdamentals.
2. How do I register for a no-obligation trial class?
Please call the office at 210.399.4861 to schedule your trial class. These classes are subject to availability and occur in the first SIX weeks of a season. No obligation trial classes mean that you are able to come and do a trial class and if you would like to join you will be charged for that class and going forward. However, if you determine that after your trial you do not want to sign up then no fee will be charged.
3. What is your payment policy?
Payment is paid monthly through an auto-debit program. Initial registration into Alamo KidSports programs requires registration for no less than the duration of the current season, paid automatically every month. After the initial season, payments continue every month into the next season until canceled with thirty (30) days written notice. The payment for the initial season is fully earned upon being invoiced, but is broken into smaller payments every month to assist your family’s budget. We accept credit card payment, and we also accept payment by automatic withdrawal from a checking account. Payment may be made in person or by mail. Please refer to our Payment Policy: Alamo KidSports Policy.
4. Where are classes located?
We are located at 15675 San Pedro Avenue @ The Training Ground. The facility is on the southbound access road of 281 between Thousand Oaks and Brook Hollow, immediately after the Enterprise Rent-a-Car Center.
5. Can I register my child for more than one sport?
Yes, your child can be enrolled in more than one sport. There is a multi-sport discount, so please call the office at 210.399.4861 for more information.
6. Can I change sports/classes during the season? What is the “Transfer Window”?
The “Transfer Window” will be opened around five (5) to six (6) weeks prior to the end of a season for about two weeks. During this time, kids can decide to move on to a different sport or can discuss with their instructor about moving to a different class within their current sport for the next season. The Transfer Window will close no later than three (3) weeks prior to the end of a season in order to allow us to ensure each class desired has adequate numbers and to give our current members first preference for the next season over new members.
7. How many classes are there in a season?
There are 12 classes – one class per week – in one season. Upon the completion of a season, we immediately begin a new season so your child can play sports year round.
8. How long are the classes?
All Alamo KidSport classes run for 50 minutes for SoccerTots, Lil Sluggers and HoopsterTots and 1 hour for SoccerTouch, Hoopsters, Sluggers and FitPlay.
9. My child will turn a year older in the middle of the season, which age group class do you recommend I register my child for?
If you are new to the program we recommend taking the class that fits your child’s age at the time you join. The instructor can assess the ability of the child once the season begins, and can recommend a higher level class (age group) and your child maybe allowed to move up or down in class levels depending on the situation and availability. This applies for all ages and all programs.
10. There are no suitable class times to fit around my schedule; will Alamo KidSports create a class for me and my child?
Subject to facility availability, we would be happy to create a new class time for you as long as you know at least three other children to create a class and all participants will receive a 10% discount.
11. What do I need to bring to class?
We provide all equipment needed for the class. Your child should wear loose-fitting clothing and comfortable shoes, such as sneakers or tennis shoes. (No sandals, crocs or boots.) We also recommend bringing something to drink, as not all facilities provide water fountains. For the Bears and SoccerTouch program, your child should wear shinguards. Classes at The Training Ground, Alamo KidSport’s premier facility, are on our premier artificial grass and kids may wear cleats. Please bring a pair of tennis shoes to all classes.
12. What is your cancellation policy?
All class students must provide thirty (30) day written cancellation notice for billing arrangements to be removed from processing every month and must have their cancellation be effective the end of their first season at the earliest. Please refer to our Payment Policy: Alamo KidSports Payment Policy.
13. Do I need to buy any special apparel or equipment for my child?
All Alamo KidSports programs are non-competitive and most classes are held indoors. No special apparel or equipment is needed for our classes, except for shinguards for soccer participants and baseball gloves for children 5 years and above. Specifically, your child does not need their own ball, bat or basketball. Lil Sluggers participants may bring their own glove to class, but it is not required for 2-4 year olds.
14. Can I bring siblings to an Alamo KidSports class?
Younger siblings are welcome to observe the class but for safety reasons we cannot allow these younger children to walk and crawl around the field and play with equipment in the same area as the class. Older siblings are welcome to watch but due to the focus and attention required in these classes we cannot allow them to participate.
15. How do I schedule a make-up class?
Each participant is allowed two makeup classes per season. These makeup classes must be setup with the main office PRIOR to the day of the desired makeup class. Specifically, our Saturday morning classes are usually full and a waiting list is setup for makeups during this time. Regardless of the time, all makeups must be scheduled with the office. Walk-in make up classes are not allowed.Make up eligibility expires at the end of each season. A make-up can be scheduled anytime during the week you wish to use it; but availability is NOT guaranteed. Once you withdraw make up eligibility ends. You may not make up a make-up lesson. Make-ups are non-transferable and have no cash value.
16. Can I request a specific coach?
We cannot guarantee a coach for any class and we will always reserve the right to change coaches if conditions require it. We are well aware that different students respond to different coaching personalities, and we will always try to respond to these needs. While we try to inform parents of our intent to have certain coaches coach certain classes, again due to the circumstances we cannot guarantee a certain coach will be coaching a certain class.
