Garland ISD offers competitive swimming and diving for both girls and boys at the varsity and junior varsity level at every high school. Swimming and Diving allows students to progress and earn their success on their own level by hard work, commitment and team accountability. Students should be enrolled into the swimming or diving class.
All teams practice and compete at the new Garland ISD Natatorium. The address is 2585 Firewheel Pkwy, Garland TX 75040. Members of the team are involved in many other school organizations and activities and are very successful in the classroom. We consistently place swimmers on the All-District and All-Region Teams as well as Academic All-State.
Try outs will be offered before the start of school on Friday August 7th and Saturday August 8th. In in order to try out all Athletic paperwork must be completed. This includes on-line paperwork through Rank One and a hard copy of the physical history and physical examination. Upon completion of try outs the student will be moved if needed, to either the first period class or the fourth period class. Placement in class does not automatically place a student on Varsity or Junior Varsity. Placement on specific teams are at the discretion of the coaching staff.
Students should know how to swim, be knowledgeable of the four competitive strokes of swimming and able to swim a 50-yard freestyle at minimum.
In addition, other events that may be swum during try outs are the 50-yard breaststroke, 50-yard butterfly, 100-yard freestyle, 100-yard I.M. and the 200-yard freestyle. A test set may also be used to determine placement of swimmer during try outs.
For any questions please contact Coach Philip Wiggins or see your counselor.

Volleyball season officially starts August 1 and runs through October.
When planning family vacations and appointments, please be aware that we will begin August 1, which is before school starts. We expect all athletes to be at every practice, game, team activity, etc.
Games will be on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Tournaments are Friday-Saturday throughout August and September. Please plan accordingly.
We encourage all incoming freshman to participate in our summer volleyball camp July 30-31 from 9am-4pm. Open gyms will also be offered throughout the summer. See attached schedule.
We also encourage our athletes to participate in other school sports, in addition to volleyball. We always work out conflicts so do not feel pressured to choose one sport.
