All Headwaters High School students have the opportunity to participate in our after-school sports program, regardless of previous experience. Each season begins with a trial period in which students can try out the sport. Teams compete in the TCSAAL for flag football, and the TAIAO for all other sports.
Our teams are competitive within these leagues and have won numerous championships over the years, but above all our program emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork, and playing for the love of the game.
Throughout the school year we offer the following teams:
Flag Football (Coed)
Basketball (Separate Girls and Boys Teams)
Each sport has a dedicated coach from the Headwaters Community. Teams typically have practices or games 4-5 days a week. Practices are after school and usually take place at the Austin Recreation Center, Duncan Park, or Zilker Park.
Jason’s passion for fitness only rivals his passion to teach and serve youth. After over fifteen years of fitness experience overseeing operations for Gold’s Gyms all over the nation, Jason returned to Austin to focus his efforts on family and wellness. Inspired by his three rambunctious kids, The Fitness School was created in 2015 to provide kids with more structured physical activity. Jason wanted to create a curriculum that would convert time after school into something that addressed, promoted, and enhanced their current physical education. His aim is to partner with schools and organizations to help promote a culture of wellness, teamwork, and setting/achieving goals.
