Sports in San Antonio


The SLA Annual Conference is quickly approaching and will take place in beautiful San Antonio, Texas, USA. There are many compelling reasons for attending the conference, but unbeknownst to many, San Antonio is a sports mecca! It's home to the 1999 NBA Champion Spurs, the AA San Antonio Missions, and the Central Hockey League Iguanas. While not all of these teams will have home games during the conference, there should be enough sports activity in the city to satisfy any sports fan.

spectator Sports

For the armchair athlete, San Antonio has a variety of venues where you can indulge your sports addiction. Perhaps the most recognizable is the famed Alamodome, home of the Spurs and the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame. It's been a huge part of the city's sports life for over a decade and continues to be the most popular sites for athletic competitions.

Baseball fans who don't want to make the road trip to Arlington or Houston can take a trip out to the ballpark and watch the SA Missions.

Also, if the sound of engines revving and the swirl of the checkered flag gets your pulse racing, head out to the NASCAR sanctioned races at the San Antonio Speedway on Highway 16 or NHRA Championship Drag Racing at the Alamo Dragway. If you prefer racing of a more genteel nature, you may want to venture out to nearby Retama Park and some of the finest quarterhorse and thoroughbred racing in the South.

Golf (Full Course)

Many people may not realize it but Texas is a golfer's dream. The San Antonio metropolitan area and the surrounding Hill Country has over Forty public, municipal, semi-private, military, and private golf courses of all difficulty levels and price ranges. Guests staying at hotels near the Riverwalk (and who don't want to break the bank on greens fees) may want to tote their clubs over to the Brackenridge Municipal Golf Course, the Willow Springs Municipal Golf Course, or the legendary Pecan Valley Golf Club.
