The University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced its latest cycle of high school athletics realignment on Feb. 1.

The latest realignment will see New Braunfels High School move from Class 6A to Class 5A, while Long Creek High School, New Braunfels ISD’s new high school which will open in the fall, will begin as a Class 4A school in individual sports. A district for individual sports at Long Creek is expected to be announced in the next month or so.

A change for New Braunfels High School fans is that Class 6A includes four regions with 32 districts. In Class 5A, divisions are split into division 1 and division II. Each division includes four regions.

Long Creek will not have team athletics play in a UIL district/playoffs until the 2026 school year.

The UIL calculates realignment classifications by the number of students who attend each school. The enrollment minimum for Class 6A was set by the UIL at 2,275 students. The Class 5A enrollment range is classified at 1,315 to 2,274. Class 4A enrollment is 545 to 1,314.
