The University Interscholastic League (UIL) is extending its suspension of all UIL sanctioned activities due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Texas. All contests, practices, rehearsals and workouts will remain suspended until further notice.

At this time, the earliest games and contests may resume is Monday, May 4th. Prior to this date, the UIL will allow its member schools a reasonable acclimatization period for rehearsals and practices to occur. All decisions remain flexible and will be consistent with the advice of local, state and federal officials.

"We are working diligently on contingency plans to conduct state championships in each of the activities that have been suspended," said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. "While the immediate future is unclear, we are committed to providing these much-desired activities to all Texas students and will prepare for all possible outcomes, including extended school closures."



History of UIL at Texas Tech

The University Interscholastic League (UIL) was created by The University of Texas at Austin to provide leadership and guidance to public school debate and athletic teachers. Since 1910 the UIL has grown into the largest inter-school organization of its kind in the world.
UIL exists to provide educational extracurricular academic, athletic, and music contests. The initials UIL have come to represent quality educational competition administered by school people on an equitable basis.
The earliest documentation identifying Texas Technological College as a host of a University Interscholastic League event was March 1938 in the 'Texas Tech Magazine: Engineering Edition'. Texas Tech University has since expanded its support of Texas public high school education by creating its own specialized unit (TTUIL) charged with administering a wide variety of UIL regional and invitational competitions, workshops, and summer camps.

Mission of Texas Tech UIL

Texas Tech UIL supports advancing the awareness of and increasing the enrollment of Texas Tech University by hosting UIL regional academic and athletic competitions which enable many of the top high school students from across the state the opportunity to visit the Texas Tech campus.
Texas Tech UIL is dedicated to providing high school students with unbiased competitions; quality venues; and promoting partnerships and collaborations with local and regional educators and business establishments.
