Texas University Interscholastic League sports cover a wide range of both individual and team sports, such as team tennis, cross country, soccer, basketball, and swimming and diving. Texas UIL sports are played at both the high school and junior high levels.
The Texas UIL is an inter-school competition that was created in 1910 by the University of Texas at Austin. The league operates as a part of the University and includes both academics and music activities in addition to sports. Students who represent their schools in the Texas UIL are required to meet standards of eligibility set by the organization and enforced voluntarily by participating schools.
