The Chargers are an under-12 (U12) girls select soccer team playing within the San Marcos Area Youth Soccer Organization (SMAYSO).

The Chargers won four games at Williamson County Regional Park (WCRP), earning a championship match against an aptly-named Austin Lonestars 98G Gold A squad. The Chargers won the title, 1-0, on an early goal by Savannah Jones and numerous saves by goaltender Rebekah Bryan.
