Great news from Morgan's Wonderland today. The Scorpions haven't even completed their first season and already the city is reaping a huge benefit from the organization. Here it is:

We are thrilled to announce an exciting, new program called South Texas Regional Adaptive & Paralympic Soccer (or STRAPS). This program will bring soccer to an entirely new group of athletes-- both youth and adult-- who never knew they could play the game!

It will feature programs especially for:
Ambulatory/Paralympic Soccer
Wheelchair Soccer
Power Soccer
Special Olympics Soccer

At a News Conference this morning, Dr. Mary Wise with Boeing and Michael Hitchcock, President of the San Antonio Scorpions FC, donated $50k each for this new adaptive sports program, STRAPS.
