International Baccalaureate World School

Parents and Swimmers,

We are excited that the start of the swim season will be here before you know it!

Last year we had a banner year with our 8th Grade boys taking the district championships for the first time ever! 

We practice at TH Rogers (5840 San Felipe) at 6 am. We meet at the entrance located on Bering drive. After practice, students will shower and get ready for their school day in the TH Rogers locker rooms.  We arrange a bus for our swimmers so that they make it to Tanglewood on time.  

Try-outs: November 1st for first-time swimmers and November 2nd for all swimmers

Swim season runs November through February. 

Before attending try-outs, you need to confirm with the Coach Merrill that all paperwork has been submitted. You will not be allowed to try out (and therefore will not make the team) if your paperwork is not submitted by October 27th (Friday) 

A skills-based rubric will be used to determine who makes the swim team. The team will be posted ....... at 3:15 pm outside of Mr. Gardner’s classroom (124).

Try-outs and practices are closed to parents per Tanglewood Athletics guidelines.

If you have any questions, please email us at jmerrill@houstonisd.org or lgardne3@houstonisd.org.


Jessica Merrill and Loren Gardner
