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!
