Right now, athletes are stuck inside trying to stay busy and wait out the storm of COVID-19. However, with the possibilities of finishing the season still on the horizon for the summer, teams are finding unique ways to keep their athletes active while at home.

San Antonio Spirit is utilizing apps like Facebook, GroupMe, and other group messaging apps to send videos of at-home workouts and routine mark throughs.  

“We have created challenges to see who can perform the best and blow their coaches away without doing actual skill (in their kitchen, living room, etc.),” said San Antonio Spirit’s Marketing Director, Ruben Valdez. “This is a fun way to keep their minds off the matter at hand while also keeping their routine fresh in their minds.”

To make sure their bodies stay performance-ready, San Antonio Spirit has brought back their "Summer Workout of the Week" and has encouraged all their athletes to take part.

While San Antonio Spirit is feeling the hurt of this situation, they still want to help out in their community any way they can.

“We would like to make sure the cheer community understands they are not alone. San Antonio Spirit, along with the rest of San Antonio and surrounding areas, are ready and willing to assist any family struggling with finding meals for their children during the closure of schools and businesses. We encourage all of the cheer community to come together and #aimhigher as a community. We cannot settle nor can we become dormant in this situation.”

Although the season has been postponed, this pain is a reminder of the love we all have for All Star. The timing of this crisis is not the best, but teams like San Antonio Spirit are looking for the silver lining and are working to come out of this stronger than ever.
