New Season. New Excitement.

We are excited to begin the Fall Season and work with our student athletes at practice and in games at the Grapevine Fieldhouse! Our coaches are energized and looking forward to seeing the continued development in our players! 

Tryouts for new players will be held on Saturday August 13th at Grapevine Faith High School.   The time of your tryout will be determined by the grade of your player and emailed to you the week before.    There are lots of new players who have already signed up to come out and we look forward to meeting everyone!    

As always we thank our returning families for your continued loyalty and support. Many of you have referred us to your friends -- this means a lot to us and we sincerely appreciate you.

The Texas Tar Heels continue to grow and which is only possible with your great support!

On behalf of our coaches and staff, thank you. - Coach Nate
