AquaTex Waterpolo is a development club. Our aim is to help our athletes be their best and to prepare for whatever comes next, whether it includes water polo or not.


It is and always has been an extremely high priority of the club to prepare our athletes to play in college, whether varsity, club, or junior college. Here you will find items relevant to those who have an interest in a collegiate water polo career.

  • List of Varsity Water Polo Programs: updated regularly to include new programs and, regrettably, those that have been eliminated.
  • Lists of men’s and women’s California community college programs. Not sure if a four-year program is how you want to dive in to collegiate water polo? Countless NCAA players started their careers and earned coaches’ attention and one of dozens of JCs in California. Don’t be fooled: some of these programs are better than many NCAA teams.

Zoom Seminar on Playing in College

In April 2021 AquaTex hosted Joe Linehan, USA Water Polo’s Director of Growth, to talk about the things athletes and families need to consider if interested in a collegiate water polo career. It is a comprehensive look at the subject and covers many questions you may have and items you may have never considered.

“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”
