Statement on COVID-19 and TISCA Water Polo Season

To all TISCA Water Polo West Region coaches, athletes, families and supporters:

On March 14, 2020, TISCA Water Polo Chairman Scott Slay announced that TISCA Water Polo will follow the UIL playing guidelines sent out regarding COVID-19. The UIL has halted all athletic competitions until March 29th. If you have any competitions scheduled from now until the 29th, please cancel the event and send out a notice to the coaches and teams who were involved in that competition.

  • The Waco Tournament on Saturday, March 21st is now cancelled. Dan Marlin has let me know Midway ISD is closed for the next two weeks and not permitting extra-curricular activities of any kind.
  • The AQTX Tournament at Round Rock on Saturday, March 28th is now cancelled. James Smith will post on update on this on the TISCA West Website.
  • Dan Marlin has let me know that as of right now the West Region Tournament on April 10-11 is still on at the Waco YMCA.

At this time we do not have any other updates from TISCA on changes to the state tournament (May 1-2 in Houston) or the remainder of the season. This is all pending UIL competition updates we get in the next few weeks. Please follow your school districts policy on cancellation of extra curricular activities and we will try to reschedule games as needed. At this point I think we can all agree the safety of the players and community is our top priority.

I will send out updates as we hear from our school districts and TISCA, please reach out with any additional questions.

Thank you,

Ms. Allie Hill
TISCA Water Polo West Region Representative
