Choate has a long and successful history of water polo, fielding varsity and junior varsity teams for both the boys and the girls. We play primarily against teams in the Western New England Preparatory School Athletic Association. Since the team’s inception we frequently qualified for the post-season, making it to the championship game on several occasions.  Both boys’ and girls’ water polo players have been named to the New England All-Tournament Team and throughout the years quite a few have gone on to play water polo in college.

Applicants must be dynamic individuals who are passionate about their discipline, collaborative and innovative in their approach to teaching and coaching, and who embrace and support the diversity of our student body.  Our faculty is deeply committed to the entire student experience, as such it is expected that faculty responsibilities will include a combination of student advising, residential life, and extracurricular activities.

Interested candidates should submit a resume and one-page statement articulating coaching philosophy and/or vision for a varsity water polo program to Kathy White at
