The University of California, Berkeley, is one of the world's leading institutions of higher education, distinguished by its combination of internationally recognized academic and research excellence; the transformative opportunity it provides to a large and diverse student body; its public mission and commitment to equity and social justice; and its roots in the California experience, animated by such values as innovation, questioning the status quo, and respect for the environment and nature.

Departmental Overview

The Men's Club Water Polo team was started less than 10 years ago, and has grown to become one of the best club programs in the country. The team boasts five straight CWPA Sierra Pacific Division Championships, as well as yearly CWPA top 5 National Tournament finishes. We have had multiple first team, second team, and third team player mentions each season. A large part of our season is raising enough money to travel to nationals and buy caps/gear, which is something we are extremely proud of. Our team intends to transition from a consistent regional champion to a national champion over the upcoming season. The successful candidate will possess a positive, inspiring attitude and will be expected to steward the program through a growth phase with improved competitive success and advancement as the core goals.
