Who’s Playing Where and When?

This tournament (really two tournaments) is a new one for us so hopefully this will provide a little clarity about what’s going on.

  • Longhorn 10U mixed: only playing in the SWZ Festival Saturday and Sunday. Not Friday.
  • Longhorn 12U mixed: Longhorn is the only Texas 12u mixed team going to CA so we get the top seed! We’ll have no games Friday, and will start playing in the SWZ Festival on Saturday the 11th.
  • Longhorn 14U boys: 14u boys will play Pegasus and Thunder Friday, 1:00 PM first game, 4:00 PM second game. Those two games will produce 1-3 seeding. We will then play in the SWZ festival Saturday and Sunday.
  • Longhorn 18u boys: have a single game on Friday, 2:00 PM vs Pegasus. Then will play at the Festival on Saturday and Sunday.
  • AquaTex 16u boys: Saturday and Sunday only.
  • AquaTex 18u girls: Saturday and Sunday only.

Steps for AQTX & Longhorn Athletes

From the Host

The SWZ NJO Quals will be for those teams trying to qualify for Session #1 or Session #2 and will be played on June 10-12 (Friday-Sunday). On June 11-12 (Saturday-Sunday), we will have a separate tournament named the SWZ Festival for all other clubs/teams in the SWZ. The SWZ Festival is NOT a “seeding” tournament for those teams entered in Session #3. The SWZ Festival is an opportunity for clubs/teams to have a competitive tournament this specific weekend even if they are not trying to qualify for NJO’s Session #1 and Session #2. The intent is to have a large event (both tournaments, same weekend/locations) where all SWZ teams, clubs, and athletes can play and compete. Both tournaments will be in Northwest Houston, locally hosted by the CFWPC. The primary location is the CFISD Natatorium with secondary locations at Cy Ranch HS and Bridgeland HS. Below is all the info on both events.
