On October 21, water polo became an official UIL Varsity Sport in Texas beginning in fall 2021. UIL is the University Interscholastic League and it oversees the vast majority of athletic, musical, and academic contests for public primary and secondary schools in our state. No other sport has been added since wrestling some 20 years ago. This is a big win for Texas and for water polo!
Pegasus will seed players into all of the high school programs in our area, including Highland Park High School. HP’s team will begin tournament competition in spring 2020 and UIL competition in Fall 2021. New varsity water polo teams will also mean a much bigger recruiting pool for national team pipelines and NCAA programs; improved coaching training, and tournaments visiting the Lone Star state.
Free clinics are planned for December 7.
Girls and boys ages 7-17 interested in learning about water polo are encouraged to attend the free clinic hosted by Pegasus Water Polo Saturday.
Ages 10 & under noon - 1pm
Ages 11 & up 1-2pm
SMU Aquatics Center (5550 SMU Blvd).
