Some History

In the fall of 2013 we began practicing at Micki Krebsbach Pool with a lot of dedicated high school athletes and a growing number of younger ones. By 2015 it was clear that joining AquaTex Swim Team would help the club grow. So in January 2016, AquaTex (AQTX) Waterpolo was formed.

Round Rock’s first water polo program was the Central Texas Waterpolo Club, founded in 2013 by Coach James. Within that short period of time the club has produced multiple high school all-region and -state award winners, three collegiate varsity athletes, Lone Star League and USA Water Polo tournament champions, and hundreds of young athletes who will take their experience as a teammate to whatever comes next for them.

Philosophy

#BeYourBest

Sometimes the best philosophy is the simple one.

“Be Your Best” is our way of committing to your athletes as players, teammates, and people. We are here to help them become the best he or she can whether that’s in the pool or out.

With the help of our parents and open communication we want to create an environment in which children can thrive. So, our motto and our philosophy is always, “Be Your Best.” If that means you want to become a collegiate water polo player, we will help train and challenge you. If you want to be a successful engineer, or a leader at your church, we will do what we can to help.

Coaches aim to be their best as well by emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, and relationship-building and have experience at some of the highest levels of American water polo. The club emphasizes fundamentals and individual skills since they promote smoother transitions to higher levels of water polo, while always encouraging joy in the process.

Ultimately, we hope to instill a love for the game and a healthy appreciation for the hard work it takes to be successful as a water polo player. And we aspire to genuinely contribute to the growth of water polo in Central Texas and throughout the state.
