Announcements from the Athletic Department



Howdy! We have had a great year! Thank you all for your support and contributions to the athletic department this past year, and I look forward to your continued support of our program next year!  

I met with a majority of our high school coaching staff on Saturday for a “Coffee and a Conversation with the AD.” There I provided my guidance and direction for the upcoming summer camps and for their respective seasons. As I mentioned last week, I do want to be available for a conversation with anyone who would like to sit and chat about our athletic program. The first opportunity will be this Saturday, at the Red Horn, 1615 Scottsdale Dr, Leander, TX 78641


Starting on June 5th we will have three camps starting up! Summer Run Club which meets at Brushy Creek Sports Park. We will also have our Strength and Conditioning for high school, and two volleyball camps. For more information on all our camps please visit the following link: 

All student-athletes must have a current sports physical to participate in the summer camps and in athletics.
