For our Families
Athletes, meet your coaches, Tom and Steve, 45 minutes prior to your first game of the day. If you don’t recognize the coaches look for ones wearing burnt orange. And their photos are on the ID Cards sheet linked above.
Given the total number of athletes committed to play at TAGS we will combine with Longhorn, who will take the lead on entering. Please do continue to commit via your TeamUnify account.
It is becoming more likely that Longhorn will enter one 8th grade u team and a 6th grade u team.

There will be four divisions for the TAGS Water Polo Champs – Fall 2022: 8th Grade & Younger Boys/Mixed, 8th Grade & Younger Girls, 6th Grade & Younger Mixed, and 5th Grade & Younger Mixed. The eligibility is grade only (no age requirement). As needed, we will create A/B Divisions based on the number of teams that enter the event (have awards for all divisions, including B Divisions). This will be a USA Water Polo sanctioned event using USA Water Polo rules & regulations AND include physical distancing guidelines/procedures for all athletes, coaches, referees, volunteers, and spectators. The TAGS Water Polo Champs will be a great event for all involved. NOTE: Please note the youngest division is 5th Grade & Younger not 4th Grade & Younger) The intent of this change is to get as many younger athletes/teams playing.
