Thank you to all the high school student-athletes who took the time to apply for the TISCA Theron Pickle Scholarship Program. We wish you all the best of luck with your new adventures in college. Kris Jones, our treasurer, will be in contact with recipients soon to make arrangements for sending the scholarship money to the appropriate university. If anything changes with your intent to compete at the collegiate level, please contact Kris Jones.
TISCA Technology & Communications is going to be making a couple changes going into next year in the form of communications platforms and meet/tournament calendars.
At this time the new communications platform, SportsYou, is being pioneered by the TISCA Board at this time. At this time, it is planned for more information to be given to Region Representatives in July and opened to the full membership at the clinic in September. Please make sure your Region Representative has a current email for you and all other coaches on your staff. If there are any coaches who are not TISCA members, please encourage them to get their contact information to the Region Representative as well so they can also get the necessary information for your region.
In order to make it easier to compile and find meets and tournaments and their associated information, we will be getting rid of the online calendar. Included below is a link to the NEW meet/tournament submission form as well as a link to a Google Sheet that will contain this information. This Google Sheet will have all meet information, contact information, and links to meet information pages and entry files (if submitted). The website calendars and SportsYou calendars will be used for TISCA events and major events such as TISCA sanctioned meets, District deadline, Region weekends, and State Championships. The spreadsheet will automatically sort events in chronological order.
If you get a screen that reads “You can’t respond to Meet/Tournament Calendar Submission. Uploading files is not permitted when data loss prevention is enabled for your domain.”, please try reaching out to your IT department and/or try completing the form using a different, personal account.
Attached are the results of a mythical 4A & Under State Championship might look like had it taken place this year. Bob Button, who is the coach at Bay City puts this together each year to help promote the goal of having a 3rd division in Swimming & Diving.
TISCA would like to thank Bob Button for his work in putting this together. Coach Button was also one of the coaches that worked tirelessly on the effort to have a 2nd division for Swimming & Diving in 2000. This is a wonderful tribute to Clark Wilson who coached many years in Longview.
These results were taken from the District, Region and State meets held this season. This is an effort to showcase the 102 4A & Under schools that are currently participating with the 5A schools. Our hope is to eventually have a separate division for these deserving schools.
