Andy Coffman- Head Coach

Coach Andy Coffman led the Friars to the CIF Division 3 Championship in 2018 while being named Coach of the Year by the California Coaches Association and the CIF-SS. He had five players earn All-CIF recognition with one being named Player of the Year. He also sent two players to compete collegiately for a total of nine in water polo and swim since taking over the program in 2015.

In 2017 Servite made another deep playoff run advancing to the CIF Div 3 Semifinals with four players named All-CIF. In addition, Coach Coffman was selected to coach the 2017 All-Star game in which Servite hosted and had three players participate.

As the Swim Coach, Coffman took four Friars to the CIF State Tournament in 2018 with his athlete's setting new school and Trinity League records in the 50 Free and 200 Free relay.

Prior to being hired as the Aquatics Director at Servite, Coach Coffman served as the boy’s head water polo coach at University High School from 2008-2014 and the head coach at SOCAL Water Polo Foundation from 2009-2014.

Prior to beginning his coaching career, Coffman played at UC Irvine under legendary coach Ted Newland and was a member of the Anteater's swim team for two seasons.During his time at UCI, he also trained with the USA National team and played one season in the Australian National League.

Coffman returned to his alma mater in 2004 where he spent seven seasons as the Women’s Water Polo assistant coach helping the Anteaters to three consecutive Big West conference championships and a school best 5th place finish at the NCAA Championship tournament. During this time he also served as an assistant coach at Corona Del Mar High School and as the General Manager/Head Coach of the Coast Water Polo Club.

Coffman graduated from UCI in 2001 with a degree in social sciences. Before attending UCI he was an All-American in water polo and swimming at Clovis High School.

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.

Nestor Nunez- Assistant Coach

Coach Nunez joins the Friars' Water Polo program for the 2019 season and will also teach Chemistry at Servite. Nestor Nunez is also the 18 and under coach for Northwood Water Polo Club.

Most recently, Nunez coached at Orange Lutheran where he spent 6 years under Head Coach Steve Carrera winning a Division 1 CIF-SS championship with the Boys and the Girls teams in 2016, Regional championship with the boys in 2017, and State championship with the girls in 2019. Prior to Northwood WPC, he coached at Northwood High School as an assistant in 2011-2013, under coaches Chris Murin and Jocelyn Manderino, helping the Timberwolves to a Pacific Coast League Championship in 2012. Prior to Northwood High School he coached 14u-18u at Orcutt Polo Associate/One Way Water Polo Club under Rob Knight and Kyle Shaffer.

Nestor played on the men’s water polo team at Concordia University of Irvine playing for coach Steve Carrera where the eagles won an NAIA title in 2011. He double majored in Biology and Chemistry and received ACWPL Academic All American honors in 2011.

Prior to transferring to Concordia, Nestor played water polo and swam at Cuesta College (2009) for long time coach John Marsh. During his year at Cuesta, his team earned a second place finish in 2009 and a Western State Conference Championship in 2010. 

Nestor graduated from Santa Maria High School in 2009 where he was a two year letterman and played club water polo at OPA/One Way Water Polo Club under coaches, Eric Tucker, Rob Knight, and Charles Bell.

Nestor strives to help develop young men and women of high character with strong fundamentals.

Fr. Kevin Fitzpatrick Aquatic Center

 

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.
