TOMBALL ISD Junior High School Aquatics Program
Creekside Park, Tomball, & Willow Wood


What is this program about? This is a pre-competitive/ competitive opportunity for Tomball ISD Junior High

School students. This is not a learn to swim program. Students unable to swim the length of the pool or meet minimum swimming standards, due to safety concerns, will not be allowed to participate. Brian Vestal, Head Swim Coach at Tomball High School, will work with the students participating in this program. This program does not take place of the PE credit needed for each student. If a student is involved in campus based sports, those programs will take priority because the student is earning academic credit based on participation. Tomball ISD does not provide transportation to swim meets or practices. Parents will be responsible for transportation.

What is the goal of this program? The purpose of this program is to introduce swimmers to competitive programs offered at the high school level. This program is free of charge; however, parents will be responsible for personal equipment used such as goggles, swim caps, towels, and a team swim suit. Tomball ISD does not provide these items. To participate a swimmer must have a team suit, team cap, and team t-shirt
