When? Saturday, June 22 & Sunday, June 23, 2019
Where? New Braunfels High School, 551 TX-337 Loop, New Braunfels, TX 78130
Why? State is a qualifying event for AYOP in several categories, especially the National Pageants. This competition will decide who represents the State of Texas in the Beginner and Intermediate National Pageants as well as the Miss Majorette of America pageants!
Unique Feature: When State is hosted in the San Antonio area you can always expect a well run contest with large trophies for pageants and custom plaques for teams. This year the event will be held in a new facility with tons of bleacher space, nice ceilings, and lots of space. We just know the weekend will be magic when we are spending it in the home of the Unicorns!
CONTEST HASHTAG: #txstatetwirl2019
For this event, we strongly encourage our Texas twirlers to utilize the hashtag #txstatetwirl2019 when posting photos of this competition on social media. Lets see if we can get State trending in Texas!
The Tex-An Award: At State each year we celebrate the hard work of all athletes, as well as the time, commitment, and passion put forth by the athletes' parents and coaches. As a State tradition, we will once again acknowledge one special coach who has given back to baton twirling and made it an even better and more positive sport for all the athletes by awarding them the Tex-An Award. We are looking forward to presenting the award to that special coach this year!
Director's Comments - "We are thrilled to welcome you all to the 2019 NBTA Texas State Championships. This year we are celebrating with a throwback theme to our 1989 Championships. The patch sold at the 1989 Championships will be featured on our t-shirt so they are truly one of a kind. Please be sure to place a t-shirt order when submitting your entry! We hope to have an exciting competition, and if you are able to extend your trip to the San Antonio area we implore you to explore Schlitterbahn Waterpark or the town of Gruene, all within 15 minutes of the contest location!"
