The San Antonio Jr. Rampage PW Team (U12) defeated the Texas Jr. Stars 3-1 and 4-2 on Saturday to become DSTHL Champions in the Silver Division! Congratulations to the PW coaches and players on a tremendous season!!
On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the San Antonio Jr. Rampage celebrated the year's success at the AT&T Center. The Annual End of Season Awards Banquet is a great way to gather the entire organization for a big pat on the back.
Coaches recognized player's individual success on the ice for hat tricks, shut-outs and assists while also praising academic achievements. ("Ya gotta be smart to be good!")
The Commissioner's Cup, an annual award nominees were announced and Midget, Jackson Jones, was awarded top honors in this category. (For more information on the Commissioner's Cup, check out the Awards page)
Families enjoyed a slideshow of season highlights, and stayed to watch their favorite sport...hockey! The San Antonio Rampage lost to rival, Texas Stars, in a close 3-2 match, but spirits were high and there was much to celebrate.

Each year our Association takes time to honor players at every level for their accomplishments during the season.
Awards by Team: Coaches for each team award the player(s) who exemplify the best qualities in these categories:
Commissioners' Cup: Since 2007-08, the Commissioners' Cup is awarded annually to one player in the organization who epitomizes the qualities of good sportsmanship, physical fitness, outstanding leadership and hockey skill.
The ideal Commissioner's Cup nominee has a passion for the game, works hard, supports teammates and rises above adversity. He or she is of strong character, a leader of peers and displays a positive attitude.
Commissioners Cup nominees actively participate in school and often volunteer in service organizations. They're the all around good kid, the kid with heart, the kid who's always smiling...the one the Commissioners are proud to call their cup winner each year.
Typically one player from each team is nominated by the coaches for this top honor, but only one player, chosen by the Association Commissioner, can be the winner.
The 2014-15 Commissioners Cup nominees were:

The Peewee team arrived at the rink just in time to see the Bantams cap off their perfect 26-0 season with a championship win.
The Bantams couldn't leave knowing the Peewees were ready to take the ice and could cinch their championship if they pull-offed a back to back win.
Both teams won their respective championship games and were crowned the best of the Dallas Star Travel Hockey League (DSTHL).
