AQTX Waterpolo Philosophy

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”

“Focus on effort, not winning. Winning is a byproduct of effort.”

- John Wooden


Round Rock-based AquaTex Waterpolo aims to help boys and girls athletes throughout Williamson and Travis Counties develop skills to help them succeed in water polo and in life. Teamwork, cooperation, and relationship-building are highly emphasized by the coaches who have experience at some of the highest levels of American water polo. The program emphasizes fundamentals and individual skills since they promote smoother transitions to higher levels of water polo, while always encouraging fun and joy in the process.

Ultimately, we hope to instill a love for the game and a healthy appreciation for the hard work it takes to be successful as a water polo player. And we aspire to genuinely contribute to the growth of water polo in Central Texas and throughout the state. Whether you are an experienced athlete or simply interested in learning one of Texas' fastest growing sports, contact AquaTex today!


Development: We are committed to preparing our athletes to succeed at whichever level to which they aspire. We are proud to have produced the first NCAA Division I water polo athlete from the Austin area, and numerous regional and state high school award winners. But most important is simply to help the athlete be the best he or she can be no matter the level of competition.

Technique: Properly taught, technique is more valuable than innovative tactics. Attention to detail in this area produces athletes prepared for all levels of competition.

Tactics: Proper technique leads to simpler, less coach-driven tactics. Athletes are allowed to be more autonomous and creative.

Teamwork: At the center of working together toward a common goal are simple things: timeliness, responsibility, mutual respect, hard work, fun, and joy.
