DEC 23 2016 – LONESTAR ADMINISTRATION

Lonestar SC San Antonio would like to congratulate the players who made the South Texas ODP State Pool.

Many Lonestar SCSA players brought their best to ODP tryouts by displaying their technical attributes, making good decisions on and off the ball and showing leadership skills. We are proud to see our players able to take what they learn from our professional coaching staff and the LSSA playing philosophy then display it on a different stage and earn recognition for it. These players will now attend State Pool Training Sessions for an opportunity to be selected to the Region III camp.

Good luck boys and girls and let the work begin!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

OCT 11 2016 – ANDRES MARTINEZ

Lonestar San Antonio families,

We are proud to announce that Land O’ Frost has chosen Lonestar SC San Antonio for their 2016 SA Youth Sponsorship Program. This sponsorship will introduce the Land O’ Frost logo on the upper back of the grey practice shirt.

The Land O’Frost Youth Sports Program provides funds to local communities to help offset some of the costs associated with organizing and operating their youth sports programs for children up to 10 years old. Land O’Frost Youth Sports began in 2002 and since that time has grown to include more than 300 leagues, 12,500 teams, and 125,000 players. Since its inception, Land O’Frost Youth Sports has sponsored over million players.  

A message from Land O’ Frost:

“At Land O’Frost, we know the importance of families participating together in healthful, well-rounded experiences. We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to deserving communities and help keep children involved in positive character-building activities.

We would like to make a stronger effort to better communicate and be more closely involved with the leagues, the parents, and more importantly the children.

We would like to make a stronger effort to better communicate and be more closely involved with the leagues, the parents, and the children wearing Land O’Frost jerseys.  By inviting the leagues to post a special link on their own websites, we hope to build successful direct communication.  The link will take parents to a special page on the Land O’Frost website that is only accessible by that link.”

You will be allowed to wear these pink shirts at practices throughout the month of October.  If your entire teams purchases one, they may be used as a warm up game shirt!   What great support of a cause and educational discussion with our children on “why we wear pink!” If you know of anyone diagnosed recently or who has fought the fight, please let us know, we would love to honor them the month of October!

How to get your pink shirt:

  • TEAM ORDER (select teams):  I have sent a “team order form” to your team managers.  It is not mandatory, but so much easier, if you could order as a team your sizes and delivery is secure.  If someone could take the lead and help your wonderful team manager….that would be GREAT!  Last year we sold over 1000 – until we ran out of various sizes. We were able to donate $2,500 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation!
  • INDIVIDUAL ORDER (micro/junior academy/select players):  These will be offered the first week of October on a first come, first serve basis with sizes.  We do not plan to reorder, so preorder secures your sizes for you and your family.  The individual order form is attached and can be brought with payment beginning next week at each location (see below for admin hours at each location below in red)

Sports Medicine Associates of San Antonio – An Excellent Partnership Continued

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

SEP 09 2016 – ANDRES MARTINEZ

Lonestar San Antonio Families,

We are thrilled our partnership with Sports Medicine Associates of San Antonio (SMASA) continues for 2016-2017!

Last year we were able to work together in the Spring and get a good idea of what our club needs were from a tremendous partner such as Sports Medicine Associates of San Antonio (SMASA). Both SMASA and Lonestar SC SA have communicated so well in order to make this partnership successful. The Spring brought almost 60 visits at either our STAR or Alamo Sportsplex location. These players were seen if needed within 24 hours of the time we reached a SMASA representative. What a win/win to get our athletes seen and assessed so they can return back healthy as quickly as possible!

The representatives of SMASA will again be at our practice fields to evaluate any Lonestar athlete who is in need of an assessment of a possible injury, concussion, or evaluation. This will give your player a professional evaluation from one of our sports medicine partners, right at our fields!  If there is a concern of injury or discomfort for your player, sign up for a FREE assessment to get them checked out, feeling healthy, and back on the field as soon as possible. This sign up will stay on our website on a “need” basis for our players throughout the year.  

In order to be seen you MUST register for an appointment by using the link below or by clicking on the SMASA image on the Lonestar-sc-sa.com home page.  This will prepare the staff in knowing how many to expect that evening.  Once you have registered, you will immediately receive a release and acknowledgement form which requires a parent/guardian’s signature.  This form is needed in order to be evaluated by the athletic trainer on site.  A parent does not need to be present, but the form must be sent with the player for an evaluation (one is attached).  Spaces will be limited, so please do not wait and just walk up, as time may not allow.  

Register for your FREE Assesment appointment right HERE
