Alexxa Lowery is a sophomore at Mission Hills High School and she is a member of the AYSO Matrix U16 Girls team. She has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (Cancer in her bones) and she needs our help.
She will need to receive10 chemotherapy treatments, then have surgery to remove the cancer and they will follow that up with 20 additional chemotherapy treatments.
San Marcos Youth Soccer is doing a fundraiser to help Alexxa with her medical expenses. For the next two Saturdays (October 18th and 25th), we will be collecting and soliciting donations for Alexxa and at the end of that period, SMYS will do a match of all donations up to $1000.
We will be accepting cash and checks made out to "Alexxa Lowery" at our information table at Walnut Grove. If you wish to donate but cannot make it to Walnut Grove, you can also send a check to SMYS, PO Box 627, San Marcos, Ca. 92079.
Thanks in advance for helping a member of our local soccer community.

As many of you may have noticed, SMYS has started using a new registration program called League Toolbox to manage our Winter Arena Season. This new program not only takes registrations, but it also creates rosters and schedules, as well as helps us communicate with coaches, referees, players, and parents. Everyone that is registered in the Winter Arena Season (players/parents, coaches, referees) has a personal account that they can access to view their schedules, team rosters, and other personal information.
Logging in to your League Toolbox account is not the same as logging in to our website or your CalSouth account, so if you have experienced difficulties or confusion trying to log in, we apologize for any inconvenience. If you registered online, you used the League Toolbox program and have an account login and password.
Over the next few weeks, we will be slowing shifting our website over to the League Toolbox web hosting site and will be eliminating part of the confusion between the two sites.
To view the Spring Arena schedules, click on the schedules button on the top menu - there you will also be able to log in to your League Toolbox account.
Thank you for your patience while we work through this transition that is going to help make San Marcos Youth Soccer a more efficient soccer league.
