Coronado Aquatics Club (CAC) is a United States Water Polo (USAWP) affiliated club. We intend for our club to be nationally prominent by developing novice through elite players. Although we will emphasize enjoyment of the sport, we expect a high level of commitment and professionalism from all who are involved. Our philosophy is to have complete integration of all players based on a solid fundamental foundation from which players can move successfully to higher levels in the sport. Everyone will play the same system with adjustments based on age and ability. It is our feeling that strict safety and conduct guidelines, structured training and team-oriented focus lead to an environment where people learn and grow.
CAC's mission is to promote and support the development of amateur competitive swimming and water polo; to aid in the promotion and staging of aquatic competitions and allied activities; and to foster and encourage the development of youth with regards to leadership, citizenship, self-reliance, and self-assurance. To accomplish this CAC facilitates an atmosphere of positive attitude and competitive edge with a year-round training program for boys and girls ages 7 and up. The club is staffed by 5 professional coaches and uses the state-of-the-art and top-notch BBMAC Aquatics Facility located on the campus of Coronado High School.
Our overriding goal is to have each member reach his or her athletic potential while learning such life skills as dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship. While players register for a group based on age and sex, the competitive water polo teams are organized into progressive training groups that provide instruction and conditioning appropriate to each athlete's skill level.
The club has enjoyed much success over its history. Former members include many college scholarship water polo players, including players who have earned spots on the United States National and Olympic teams where there are currently an unprecedented four players from Coronado. These exceptional athletes and mentors frequently come back to their home pool in Coronado and get in the water to help the newest and youngest players get a start in the sport.
