The registration process for the 2023 State Meet is changing. We are going away from the tier 1/2 process in favor of a preregistration and ranking process. Full details to be published shortly. Below is a brief overview and timeline for registration:
– Qualifying Period: October 1, 2021 – October 15, 2022
– Qualifying Events: Any local meet hosted in Texas
– Preregistration: October 1 – October 15
– Invoices: Sent in 2 waves; October 23 – 29 and then October 30 – November 4 based on ranking

The Marriott DFW is offering our group a reduced rate of $104/night!  There is no fee for parking and a complimentary airport shuttle from George Bush Intercontinental (IAH).  Make your reservations now!

This will be another 3 day event and we will be able to accommodate up to 420 athletes!  Please ensure you register for your proper division.  Divisions will not be immediately validated.  After validation occurs, and you have registered for the wrong division, your registration will be refunded.  Meaning, you will need to register again.  It also means that, if your division is now sold out, you will have to be wait listed.

We will close registration on December 1.  This is done so that travel arrangements can be made with confidence in advance.  A schedule will be ready on, or about, December 1 and will be similar to the below very tentative schedule.
