The team is owned by Peter Holt, who also owns the Stars' NBA counterpart, the San Antonio Spurs.
The Stars have qualified for the WNBA Playoffs in seven of their 13 years in San Antonio. The franchise has been home to many high-quality players such as all-star point guard Becky Hammon, solid power-forward Sophia Young, former first-overall draft pick Ann Wauters, and seven-foot-two-inch center Margo Dydek. In 2008, the Silver Stars went to the WNBA Finals.
In January 2014 the team dropped the "silver" from San Antonio Silver Stars (the name it had since the team first moved to San Antonio) and became the San Antonio Stars.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
September 2016 Member Spotlight
Amanda A. Petter, MS. began her education at Tarleton State University where she completed her Undergraduate and Master level studies. She has a Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management and a Masters degree in Leadership and Management. During her education at Tarleton State she first decided that she wanted to work with children as a teacher, coach or counselor. While playing collegiate volleyball she worked with children in the Special Olympics, and at athletic and academic camps. Amanda realized at this point, her passion for working with children and wanted to somehow be a mentor and help others. After a year she came to the conclusion that she had a bigger dream. Not only did she want to work with children, but she wanted to own and operate a facility that could make a significant difference in children's lives.
