Water polo program head Brian Flacks ’06 was invited to be the assistant coach for the U.S. Men’s Junior National team, which will compete in the Youth World Championships in Istanbul in August. Flacks led the boys’ team to a CIF Division I championship this season and was named CIF-SS Division 1 Coach of the Year for 2013.

“He is one of the most energized and enthusiastic coaches I have ever been around,” center Ben Hallock ’16 said.  “He is always wanting to increase his players and his own knowledge of the game. He puts so much effort into pre-game scouting and game planning, and there has never been a game where myself or the team felt unprepared.”
