Let's "Set" a Record!
See some of the best student-athletes in the nation at the NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship, December 15 and 17 in the Alamodome. San Antonio is going for the attendance record for the women’s national tournament and one way you can help do that is to send one deserving girl or a whole team of ten girls to the matches.
Your gift will give joy and motivation to girls who might otherwise never have the chance to experience a national championship tournament in person. San Antonio Sports will work with our inner-city partners to identify young volleyball players and teams to be the beneficiaries of your generosity.
Please donate $33 to send one girl or $333 to send a team of ten girls to the Championship. Click here to find out more and help us “set” a record -- 17,431 fans are all we need!

| Catch Soccer Fever |
| San Antonio will again be the site of the Big 12 Women's Soccer Championship today through Sunday at Blossom Soccer Stadium, 12002 Jones Maltsberger Rd. This will mark the 15th consecutive year the nonprofit San Antonio Sports has co-hosted the conference championship in the Alamo City with the University of Texas. For Texas A&M fans, this will mark the last time their team is eligible for the championship before the school moves to the Southeastern Conference (SEC) next year. All current Texas A&M students will be admitted free of charge with a student ID, thanks to the generosity of an Aggie alum. Tickets start at $7 (children 5 & under are free) and can be purchased at the gate or online at SanAntonioSports.org. |
The NCAA Division III Soccer Championship is also returning to San Antonio. The men’s and women’s championships will be held Dec. 2 and 3 at Blossom Soccer Stadium.
