Academic All-State Guidelines:
1. Academic All-State athletes and members of the support staff of that sport MUST BE GRADUATING SENIORS;
2. Must have an overall GPA average of 94 or above for grades 9-11.
(Do NOT submit a nomination if your athlete does not meet this GPA requirement.) Nominations MUST contain a NUMERICAL GPA rather than on a point scale; i.e. 94 or above versus 4.0, 3.8, 5.0, etc. Ten (10) points may be added for weighted classes.

IMPORTANT -- Prior to nominating an athlete, coaches should confirm that if selected, the athlete can be present for the All-Star orientation and will attend all practices. Players unable to commit to this policy should not be nominated. The All-Star position is a great honor and players should be aware PRIOR to nomination that they are committed to follow policies of the Texas Girls Coaches Association.
RED/BLUE ALL-STAR SECTIONS: The state is divided into Red and Blue sections for determining the All-Star teams. Refer to your TGCA REGION -- NOT UIL -- to determine which section you are in.
