It has come to our attention 

If your athlete attended a traditional public or private school between K-8 then they should be classified with respect to the grade at which the athlete attended the school.  To classify an athlete using the “traditional school method” the school must have been an accredited entity with the state of Texas (so Co-ops and micro schools do not count).

If an athlete is currently homeschooled then you need to follow these guidelines for the 2023-2024 season. 

  • No homeschool athletes born before Sept 1, 2005 should be playing in TAIAO without having received an exemption.
  • Athletes born between Aug 31, 2005 and Sept 1, 2006 should be classified as Seniors
  • Athletes born between Aug 31, 2006 and Sept 1, 2007 should be classified as Juniors
  • Athletes born between Aug 31, 2007 and June 1, 2008 can be classified as Sophomores (or Juniors if they have already played 2 years of varsity sports)
  • Athletes born between May 31,2008 and June 1, 2009  can be classified as Freshman (or Sophomores if they have already played 1 year of varsity sports).
If an athlete starts playing any varsity sport at any age then they may only play 4 consecutive years. Exemptions to play younger players are rarely granted and must be given before the player starts playing varsity sports.

If your athletes did not obtain an age exemption before they became a varsity athlete they CAN NOT apply for an exemption after the fact. For example, if an athlete turned 14 years old before the season and did not apply for an exemption, the athlete would be classified as a Sophomore when entering play the following year.
Penalties for noncompliance have consistently been forfeits of games and the inability to participate in post season play.

Eligibility requirements only apply to High School and Middle School athletes that compete in TAIAO.  For example, an organization that only participates in TAIAO Football does not have to comply with eligibility rules for athletes which play a sport like soccer in a different league. 

It is important to remember that an athlete who starts his or her varsity participation in any sport (regardless of the league) will not be granted more than four years of eligibility in TAIAO without an exemption.  This means middle school athletes that compete in varsity sports in other leagues will need to apply for an exemption if they want to participate in a TAIAO varsity sport and not lose a year of eligibility.

Finally, it has come to our attention that some teams are not listing all their high school age eligible athletes on their varsity rosters.  If your athletes are high school age (born after May 31, 2008) and have not received an exemption to play in junior high, then not reporting them will result in the inability to participate in post season play. You must report all varsity athletes regardless of what level of team (Freshman, JV, etc) they play on.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Brent Golemon on the Steering Committee.  He can be reached at

TAIAO has policies restricting athlete transfers to maintain fair competition, prevent recruiting, and to uphold the integrity of the sport.

These policies aim to discourage organizations from gaining a competitive advantage by acquiring talented athletes from other organizations, ensuring a level playing field for all participants.  Furthermore, it prevents athletes from cherry picking the sports they want to play in with different organizations.

Transfer restrictions also promote loyalty and commitment to a particular team, fostering a sense of continuity and team cohesion.

Overall, these policies contribute to the overall fairness, stability, and ethical standards within the athletic community.

Subchapter H of TAIAO’s General Rules govern transfers.  Please familiarize yourself with them before engaging in the process. The process requires a co-signed document (sent from TAIAO) which requires the signatures of the Athletle. Parent. Current Coach & AD,  the New Coach & AD as well as the TAIAO Chair of the sport(s).

Homeshool organizations please read: It is written in the General Rules: 

Home school students, by nature, have more options to affiliate with multiple organizations in respect to their athletic and academic objectives. Home school students are strongly encouraged to NOT transfer from one Member Organization to another for the purpose of gaining a competitive advantage in any given contest, event or activity.

An affiliation with another Member Organization involving any contest, event or activity shall be viewed as at least a “limited transfer” for that student. For example, if a student played baseball at Member Organization A and now desires to play football at Member Organization B; the student would need to submit a transfer request for Member Organization B from Member Organization A.


Finalized Roster for High School Teams are due in Max Preps four weeks before the TAIAO tournament.  Middle school does not submit rosters in Max preps. 

Both High School and Middle School are required to submit DOB rosters to TAIAO.

We would like one roster for each  high school and middle school in an excel or csv format.  If you have more than one HS or MS team please be sure to denote in the file which players play on which teams. For example, if you have 19 varsity players and 10 are on Var and 9 are on JV then in a separate column denote which players are JV and which are Var.  If you have two varsity teams then call one red and the other blue.  We simply need to know which athlete will be playing on which team.
