T.I.S.C.A. Members,

I do hope that you have taken the much-needed time this summer to relax and recharge your batteries. As we near the 22-23 season I wanted to take a moment to make you aware of some happenings in the very near future. For those who don’t know where their Region Sites are, please go to:
https://www.uiltexas.org/swimming-diving/regional-sites for the list of locations that have been released by the UIL.

As we make the final preparations for our annual T.I.S.C.A. Clinic, please make it a priority to attend our General Meeting on Saturday morning. With this being a “realignment year” you will be voting on By-Law changes as well as your Region Reps. Please note that several of our Reps. have either moved from one region to another or have changed classification. Also, with the inception of the 4A division, each of those 4 Regions will be voting on their representatives. PLEASE get involved with the continued success of this wonderful organization….. YOUR Professional COACHES organization.

Here are a few reminders for the upcoming District meets:

1. District Meet Directors should be “flexible” with the affected entries. Substitutions will be allowed ONLY for a COVID positive athlete. The only athlete that can be substituted in is one that has not maxed their own entries. An athlete may NOT be taken from an existing entry to put in the one that is vacated by the “COVID swimmer”.

2. The top 6 in each event at the District meets will advance to their Region meet.

3. Athlete of the Meet awards are determined by NISCA PowerPoints.

4. Please remember that only registered TISCA members can vote for and are eligible for the Coach of the Year awards. An updated list of TISCA members can be found here on the TISCA website: https://bit.ly/3rqrqSs

5. Please remind District meet directors to submit results to be posted on the TISCA website after the meet. TISCA Coach & Athlete awards should also be submitted for posting as well with the meet results. Here is the link for results submissions: https://bit.ly/3Gq6rFs

Good luck to you and each of your athletes!
