"It all starts in the pool. All you need is a ball and desire to play" -unknown
St. John Bosco Water Polo focuses on helping players reach their full potential in and out of the pool. All levels of players are welcomed. The core concepts of hard work, dedication, and accountability are stressed so that each player regardless of ability will leave the program ready for whatever step they take next.
Jeff Powers has been involved in water polo and swimming for over 25 years. Born in Tennessee, Powers grew up in San Luis Obispo, CA, which was not a water polo hotbed at the time. Fate intervened when UC Irvine and Hall of Fame coach Ted Newland brought Powers on board. At a program with a penchant for developing talent, Powers blossomed and before long was part of the USA Men's National Team. He made his Olympic debut in 2004, the first of three appearances representing Team USA on the world's biggest stage. In 2008 he was a key member of the Olympic squad that brought home the silver medal. He became a key piece abroad for a variety of club teams for seven seasons with stops in Greece, Italy, and Hungary. He has currently been coaching at St. John Bosco since 2013.
