Metroplex Aquatics is dedicated to helping swimmers progress through high school swimming as well as club swimming. High school is a big part of a child's swimming career. As such, Metro recognizes and supports their efforts and achievements outside of the club team.
In addition, Metro Allen has a High School Swimming program during the summer session to help swimmers who don't usually swim club succeed in the sport. Click here to learn more about this program.
High school teams compete in a progression of 3 championship meets each year in the University Interscholastic League (UIL).
Districts: Teams compete against other teams in their district. The top 6 finishers in each event (both individual and relay) move on to Regionals.
Regionals: Teams compete against other teams in their region. The first place finisher in each event across 8 regions automatically moves on to State. After all results are in, the next fastest 8 swims across the state get called up to advance. This provides 2 heats for each event at State.
State: Teams compete against other teams in their conference.
Within each conference (4A and 5A), there are 8 regions and 32 districts. Results for all meets and state call-ups are posted on the Texas Interscholastic Coaches Association (TISCA) website at www.tisca.org.
Private and parochial schools also compete, but in a separate classification called TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools). TAPPS has 3 divisions and 2 regions (North and South) that compete in a Regionals and State championship (no district meet). At their Regionals, the top 6 place finishers in each event move on to State. The next 4 fastest swims across the two regions are then called up to fill out the 16 qualifiers for State.
