McNeil Water Polo Tryouts update...

All interested McNeil HS Water Polo prospects, I am still in search of a pool for our tryouts. BUT, please look at the below information which is extremely important and necessary should you want to tryout. Not all of the information was covered at the meeting last Friday so read close...

Tryouts will be Monday, March 23rd, from 6:30-8:00 am. (Possibly Tuesday as well) You will need to be able to provide your own transportation to the pool as well as to school after tryouts. 

Location: unknown for now


1. Physical examination by a doctor on RRISD form(see below link),%20Physical%20Education/Sports%20Physicals/RRISD_Physical.pdf
If you have competed for McNeil in another sport this year then you already have one on file. If not, you MUST have one with you in order to tryout. 

2. COPY of most recent report card(only athletes who were not on swim team)

3. Swim suit

I hope to secure pool information soon. Please continue to check this site to find out where to go on Monday. Thanks.

4. Running apparel(shoes, shirt, shorts, etc.)(we will run first)
