The UC San Diego Men’s Club Water Polo Team has come a long way since its first season in 2001. The team began with a small group of people getting together to play whenever pool times allowed, often with practices lasting until midnight. Since then it has become nationally ranked within the Collegiate Water Polo Association, competing in the Southwest Division. UC San Diego plays other collegiate teams throughout Southern California and Arizona, consistently making it to the regional playoffs. As this team matures, a national championship is imminent. Come out and join the team! Email captains for information and practice times.
