What Is It?
CenTex Consolidated is a club team for current high school athletes who do not have a UIL Water Polo team to play for. At AquaTex we have several athletes who attend Leander ISD schools, a district that (unwisely) decided to cancel UIL water polo after one season. In cooperation with Longhorn Aquatics and Zilla we want to provide a means for those athletes and many others to compete against other high schools (formally those are exhibition games) and other consolidated teams. Our aim is to prepare athletes and families for UIL water polo when their schools decide to sponsor the sport.
If you haven’t already and are interested in participating please fill out this form. The form is not a commitment (unless you indicate it) but a way for us to gauge interest.
Athletes must be current members of USA Water Polo. If you are not already please sign up for a “Bronze” membership (approx. $50/year). Go to USA Water Polo’s home page and click on the “Join Now” link at the top of the home page.
The form linked under “Intake” above will provide us your email address, which we’ll plan to use to keep the team updated. Again, fill that out if you haven’t already.
GroupMe is our “text” app of choice and helps us stay in touch with one another the most quickly. We strongly suggest you join it via this link or the QR code below.
The schedule for consolidated water polo is available via our club calendar. You can tick “Texas Consolidated” to view just that schedule and not all the other ones on that concentrated calendar. It is useful to view our schedule along side the USA Water Polo one and the UIL calendar. We’ll also try to keep updated an event page for each tourney we plan on attending. We’ll update that as soon as we have sufficient info about our families’ interest in attending.
CenTex Consolidated is a joint effort of AquaTex Waterpolo Club, Longhorn Aquatics, and Zilla. Our training plans are to meet once a week on Sunday, 10 AM to noon at Micki Krebsbach Pool, 301 Deep Wood Dr in Round Rock. Otherwise we most definitely want athletes to continue training with their clubs on other days.
Anthony Gerakos, the father of one of our athletes, Jacob, and a former player from Southern California has graciously joined us to help coach this team. You can expect to receive communications from him and he’ll be at our competitions as well. Coach James will assist.
We already have a team tee-shirt! Check it out here. You can order any time. It takes about eight days to arrive at your preferred destination.
