Coaching Staff

Our seasoned coaching staff comprises former USA National Team Members, NCAA National Champions, College and High School All-Americans, and current local Varsity High School Coaches. Our coaches are dedicated to helping players develop the skills they need to succeed in water polo and life.

At Triton, we believe in pushing athletes to develop and showcase individual athleticism within the game and embrace team concepts such as leadership and communication. Our coaches take pride in ensuring athletes progress and participate in all age groups and skill levels. We are committed to building a greater Tri-Valley Water Polo community and strive to connect our players, parents, and coaches for the betterment of our athletes' bright futures.

Athletes will participate in 4 - 5 weekly practices throughout the year, depending on the season and the focus. Workout focuses will change throughout the year based on tournament load and season.

Triton Flex Practices
