SAN ANTONIO -- A first-of-its-kind sports program that offers recreational and competitive soccer to both youth and adults with physical disabilities and special needs will kick off this fall, thanks to San Antonio Scorpions FC net profits and a generous gift from The Boeing Co.

To be known as STRAPS (South Texas Regional Adaptive and Paralympic Soccer), the program will offer athletes from all age groups the opportunity to play in one of four programs depending on their ability -- ambulatory/Paralympic soccer, wheelchair soccer, power soccer, and Special Olympics soccer.

At the STRAPS unveiling, Scorpions President Michael Hitchcock presented a $50,000 check of team net profits, while Dr. Mary Wise, Boeing San Antonio’s senior manager of human resources, presented another $50,000 check from the aerospace company’s Global Corporate Citizenship initiative to help the new soccer program get started.

“Boeing San Antonio is honored to be a part of another innovative program at Morgan’s Wonderland,” said Kevin Devine, Boeing San Antonio site leader. “Knowing that our investment will give veterans and people of all ages with physical and cognitive challenges the opportunity to come together and thrive is inspiring. We look forward to hearing about the lives that will be touched and forever changed by this unique experience.”
