December 2021 Pre-Season Update

Current and potential members, below are a few updates and things to do prior to our Spring TISCA water polo season:

  1. West Region Coaches/Sponsors/Booster Parents: Please have ONE representative per school complete our annual form no later than February 1st ! (Contact us for a link to the form). This will help me get contact information for each school participating this Spring and next Fall. Even if you are NOT planning on participating this Spring-please fill out this form.
  2. Please join the TISCA Water Polo SportsYou app (contact us for a link to specific instructions). Important information will be communicated through this app as we go through the season.
  3. The Spring 2022 TISCA State Championship will be hosted at the University of Houston by Coach Ty Halford and Clear Creek HS. As he puts together the packet and information about this tournament later this Spring I will send it out. The update can be seen on our 2022 Schedule below.
  4. Please take a look at the spring schedule  and let me know if you are able to host a tournament. I hope to get our full region schedule finalized by January. Region and state dates are finalized if you would like to send those to your parents for planning purposes. We have two open weekends that we would like to fill with tournaments: Feb 25-26 and March 11-12.
  5. View the UIL 2022 Proposed season dates and information HERE.
    1. Important dates from that file are:
      1. August 1st: First Day of Practice
      2. October 8th: District Certification
      3. October 21-22: Region Tournament
      4. October 27-28: State Championship
    2. More information will come out from TISCA and the UIL as we progress through the year.
    3. Please begin thinking and planning for the Fall 2022 season. If you aren’t sure where to start, please let me know! I’ve been in touch with a few programs on steps booster parents and coaches can take to get started.
  6. Check out education opportunities on the Southwest Zone Water Polo Website, by going to the Texas Water Polo Academy page.
  7. If you know of someone not on my email list, please pass this information along and have them contact me so I can add them.
  8. Reminder that the 2021-2022 TISCA Membership portal opened July 1st on the website. Please follow this link: https://www.tiscaonline.org/forms/23782-TISCA-2021-2022-MEMBERSHIP-APPLICATION-. Please make sure you fill in all applicable information. All coaches (both head and assistant) must be TISCA registered to coach water polo, swimming, and/or diving.

Last-here is our 2022 Resource Document, I will send out updates as we get closer to the season but please bookmark this page as a one stop for all important links. All of the information mentioned above is linked on that page.
