Colorado School of Mines Seeks Men’s Club Water Polo Coach (February 20, 2024)

The Colorado School of Mines seeks a part-time men’s collegiate club water polo coach.

The position will organize and lead water polo practices; serve as game day coach for tournaments

The men’s Club Water Polo coach will serve as a teacher and instructor for water polo by teaching and developing fundamentals and skills. The coach will refrain from any of the business operations as that is the duties of the water polo officers.

Coaches are responsible for creating and implementing practice plans and game plans as well as the skill development of each student athlete in the club.  The coach will also help students develop a healthy competitive nature, teach and demonstrate ethical behavior and good sportsmanship, and assist in the development of leadership skills.  Clubs are first and foremost student organizations, thus the internal organization, management and decision making of the club must be left to the club officers, members, and club sport council.  All coaches are considered a “Campus Security Authority” and are thus responsible and required to report any first-hand accounts or incidents of Mines student-involved harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, or sexual violence.

The club sport season runs throughout the academic year (fall and spring semester).  Practices generally occur during the week (late afternoon/early evening) with competitions occurring on weekends against local and regional colleges and universities.  As a result, coach candidates must be willing and able to work evenings and weekends.

The technical hub of the organization, responsible for providing benefits to our membership that include our Remote Stream Program, Championship Video Production and Stream, Content Creation, and technical support, the position is responsible for:

Remote Streaming Program

Across the country, there are water polo tournaments at CWPA institutions, and we are working toward streaming all of them. This is where our Remote Stream Kits come in – they contain everything needed to stream a water polo tournament including camera, encoder, tripod, and all necessary cables. We ship these kits to host institutions, hire a local camera operator, and stream the games to one of our Remote Announcer/Producers. They add graphics, announcing, and stream the games out live at We are working to increase the number of streams each season until we can eventually stream every CWPA game. This requires coordinating with host institutions for shipping and IT logistics, finding camera operators, scheduling and supporting the remote announcer/producers.

Championship Video Production and Stream

There are at least three major championships each season where we travel on-site to produce a multi-cam live broadcast of the tournament. This involves setting up 3 cameras, directing a live switch of the action, while integrating graphics, instant replay, announcing, and commercial/content integration. This is streamed out live for a Pay Per View audience on our portal at This requires coordination with the host institution to ensure that all IT needs are met for a successful stream of the event, setup and maintenance of the equipment, and troubleshooting any issues that arise.

Content Creation

We are a major source of water polo training, educational, and entertainment content. This includes our Tip of the Week series (short training tips from Olympians and major athletes), CWPA Remote series (interviews with Alum of the sport about their professions), and our podcast PoloCAST (a deep dive into the most prominent people of water polo), Game of the Week series, social media promo posts, and sponsor commercial creation. There will be need for internal educational content as well as opportunities for creative content, collaboration, and expansion of the CWPA and Water Polo.
