KABC7 Sports Anchor/Reporter, Curt Sandoval invested in Velocity less than a year ago, fulfilling one of his life’s ambitions of training younger children, and teaching them the value of hard work, and competition.

“A lot of these kid’s won’t do anything athletically beyond high school, if that… but all of them will compete in the real world for jobs and life, ” Sandoval said.

Sandoval considers himself blessed to have been around some of the best coaches known in sports, and he has utilized all of his previous knowledge to help the younger generation thrive.

As for March Madness Night, those in attendance seemed to have been caught off guard with the many creatively planned events, but needless to say, the kids enjoyed their time in the spotlight showcasing their skills in front of family and friends.

Velocity looks to make March Madness Night a yearly tradition.
