KSN programs include certification clinics for coaches, abuse prevention seminars for administrators, an orientation program for parents and a convenient and inexpensive procedure to conduct criminal background checks. From our home office in San Antonio, Texas, KSN programs are available nationwide and are currently being used by youth associations as far away as Guam, Wyoming and Pennsylvania. "Good sports... have good sports experiences."
