Summer! Congratulations to all our recent graduates. We are excited to see what comes next for our high schoolers, and are looking forward to helping our middle schoolers become prep students and athletes. The summer agenda has already started so let’s dive in.
Welcome to TX Shootout
It was a great weekend for our athletes at the Welcome to Texas Shootout in San Antonio last weekend. Michael, Jack, and Brandon were key contributors to the Longhorn 18u boys who placed fourth out of nine teams, among the best results for that team in years, and a great experience to play against very good teams from Texas and Colorado. Zairis and Sam helped the 18u Longhorn girls to a 7th place finish out of 10 very competitive teams. Luca, Riley, Nilmary, and Joey played on the 14u coed team with Viper Pigeon. They proved themselves to be leaders on that team – Riley and Luca scoring, Nilmary distributing assists, and Joey shutting them down defensively. And our famous 12u players also donned the Viper Pigeon caps. David continues his shooting assault on the net while Matthew and Enzo were the kings of steals. See all the results here and congratulations to everyone who participated.
Our first masters scrimmage on Monday the 27th was a huge success with nearly 30 athletes of all skill levels taking part. We’ll host one more free scrimmage tonight (weather permitting – Thursday if necessary) then will start charging and checking USA Water Polo membership next week. Thanks to everyone who participated and continue to spread the word.
Masters for High School Athletes
Any of our registered high school athletes can play masters at no additional cost.
The upcoming tournament schedule is busy and there will very likely be more added, including a super fun beach water polo tournament at Lake Travis. We’ll be partnering with Longhorn for many of these tournaments EXCEPT 18u boys. Let’s enter AquaTex 18u teams for the Dallas Summer Classic and Sun’s Out Guns Out.
