Mauricio Velazquez- Varsity Assistant / Goalie Coach
Mauricio Velazquez has been part of the Servite coaching staff for three years and he brings with him 28 year of aquatic experience. His career began as Head Coach of the Commerce Aquatics Program in the early 90's. As head coach he worked with athletes ranging from 10&Under to the 19&Under age levels. Under his direction, he led the program to several Senior National and National Junior Olympic tournament appearances. These resulted in many top 8 finishes, top 4 finishes and tournament championships. Many of the athletes that came from the program went on to play at the high schools and collegiate levels and helped produce championships for their respective schools.
Mauricio also went on to become a Water Polo Official for the better part of 24 years, and moved up the ranks of the officiating circuit. He became a Nationally ranked ASUA official for 8 years for USWP and a Nationally ranked Division I, II & III official for the NCAA for over 14 years. Throughout his officiating career, Mauricio went on to officiate in many CIF High School, Junior College and NCAA Collegiate Championship Tournaments. These opportunities lead him to officiate many Championship matches at those levels. Throughout his officiating career, Mauricio continued to coach club and high school teams with the specific focus of implementing sound fundamental coaching strategies to help kids become better rounded athletes.
Coach Velazquez is no stranger to Servite Water Polo. In the fall of 2016, Mauricio joined the Servite Water Polo program under the direction of Andy Coffman. He did so with the belief that Coach Coffman would be the coach to reinforce the great tradition of producing accomplished Servite athletes, but more so, great Servite men. Due to his many years in the officiating circuit, Coach Velazquez witnessed Servite's Water Polo greatness in the 90's and 2000's. Now, he is happy to welcome and usher in another era of brotherhood and excellence with Servite's 2018 CIF Div III Championship and 2017 CIF Semi-Final appearance. He continues to work with Coach Coffman with hopes to help and add to the Servite Water Polo tradition.
Caitlin Haskell- JV Coach
Caitlin Haskell will be joining the Servite High School Water Polo staff this fall. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from her varied experiences as a coach. Haskell comes to us after a 5 year streak as a division 1 collegiate coach from Fresno State University and the University of Michigan. Haskell spearheaded the birth of Fresno State's water polo program along side two time Olympian and current USA Junior Women's National Team head coach Natalie Benson. Previous to that she helped guide the Wolverines to their highest ranking, and highest finish, in program history at No. 4. This came on the heels of capturing their first CWPA title since 2010 and earning an automatic qualifier for the NCAA Tournament.
Haskell joined Michigan after spending three years (2011-14) with SOCAL Water Polo, considered among the top clubs in the country. During her tenure, she quickly rose to youth girls co-head coach and was instrumental in coaching SOCAL to top finishes in the Junior Olympics and the prestigious TYR Champions Cup, including gold at the 2013 event.
She has held the position of SOPAC Zone assistant coach and was selected to be the assistant coach for the USA National Development Team (8th grade and under) from 2011-13. She has most recently spent time as an assistant coach in the Great Lakes Zone.
In 2013, Haskell was selected to serve as a primary national staff coach for the ODP Holiday Camp in Colorado Springs, Colo.
As a collegiate player at UC Irvine (2008-11), Haskell garnered 2011 ACWPC All-America honorable mention accolades and was a two-time Big West All-Conference second team selection (2010, '11) under the tutelage of current USA Women's National Team assistant coach Dan Klatt. She ended her collegiate career with 118 career goals, including a career-best 41 as a junior, ranking among UCI's all-time goal leaders. As a senior, Haskell led the Anteaters to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history and captured three consecutive Big West Tournament titles (2009-11).
Haskell graduated from UC Irvine in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in social ecology. As a senior, she earned ACWPC All-Academic Team honors and was named a Big West and UCI Scholar-Athlete.
Prior to UCI, Haskell was a standout prep athlete at Buchanan High School, leading the Bears to three straight California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Central Section Championships. She was named back-to-back CIF Most Valuable Player as a junior and senior.

Fr. kevin fitzpatrick aquatic center
Completed in June of 2017, the Fr. Kevin Fitzpatrick Aquatic Center features a 51-meter, 7-lane Olympic-sized pool. The new aquatics center has men's and women's locker rooms with showers, three storage rooms, a coaches office with team room, two outdoor showers and a snack bar in addition to men's and women's restrooms for spectators. The pool also boasts "track-start" style racing platforms, along with warm-up and cool-down swim lanes.
For spectators, there is luxury seating below a 75' covered section with visibility to the new 15' x 8' scoreboard that sits off the pool deck 14' high.
Located on the west side of campus, the aquatics center also features a new 30-car parking lot while the old pool has been demolished to create additional parking as well.
Servite now has the ability to host future CIF playoff events for swimming and water polo as well as community events such as swim lessons.
The pool will be serviced by five wet chlorine filters with three separate chemical rooms and an outdoor storage area for all pool equipment.
The new aquatics center is named in honor of Fr. Kevin Fitzpatrick, the late Servite priest who was a teacher, avid Aquatics supporter and friend to thousands of alumni.
The first official contest will be played on August 23rd when Servite Water Polo opens their 2017 season against Edison at 4pm. The center will be dedicated on August 24th during a ceremony that will be held on the pool deck.
Servite High School would like to thank all of our generous donors for their support of this project specifically Jim Belardi '75 and Tim Buckley '73 who played a huge role in funding the aquatic center.
