    Coaches, Team Practice, & Parent Volunteer Opportunities

    Classroom teachers will serve as coaches for our UIL teams. Practices are determined by each coach as appropriate to the contest preparation needs.  Students will also be expected to study and prepare independently as well.

    We are always open to opportunities for parent volunteers.

     All participating schools are required to provide great parent volunteers to serve as Test Proctors, Graders, and/or Speech Judges on competition days.  Having several volunteers throughout the contest day will make the competition run more smoothly and end on time. If your student is competing, please plan to volunteer a few hours of your time on each contest date. In addition, each of teams will need at least one team parent to aid in team communications, co-coaches, snacks/treats/games donations for competitions days, back-up travel help, and specific team support, as asked by the coaches.

    Emails with instructions for this process will be sent out before each competition.   

    Competition Dates and Registration Information

    T.H. Rogers will compete in four competitions this year! Registration for each individual competition will be completed by the UIL Coordinator two weeks prior to each contest date and specific contest times will be issued.
