COACHING STAFF 2007 UC SAN DIEGO WOMEN’S WATER POLO Larry Sanders begins his eighth season as head coach of the UC San Diego women’s water polo team in 2007. He first joined the UCSD staff in 1993, serving as the men’s water polo assistant coach and director of the team’s recruiting efforts. In eight seasons at the helm of the highly successful UCSD women’s water polo team, Sanders has led the Tritons to a 130-108 record, with a WWPA Championship in 2000 and three runner-up finishes.

Head Coach Larry Sanders 8th season

Sanders took over the team during an exciting time for women’s water polo. UCSD had established itself as one of the nation’s top teams, winning five national championships from 1986 to 1994. But in 2000, the NCAA officially recognized women’s water polo as a championship sport, providing Sanders with new opportunities and challenges never before presented to the team. While water polo continues to be added as an NCAA sport at more and more institutions, Sanders has done an outstanding job maintaining UCSD’s level of national prestige. Sanders was selected Divison II coach of the year in 2005 and 2006, he also was the WWWPA Coach of the Year in his rookie season. His Tritons have also boasted 18 All-Americans since the move to Division II, including Four Player of the Years (Emma Kudritzki in 2002, Dana Tucker in 2003, Tobi Lyman in 2005 and Kaitlin Foe in 2006). A 1988 UCSD graduate, Sanders was a four-year starter for the Tritons, earning All-WWPA first team honors in each of his last three seasons, as well as Team MVP and an All-American Honorable Mention nod as a senior.

Our Mission...

Earl W. Edwards - Director of Athletics Earl W. Edwards accepted the position of Director of Athletics at UC San Diego in March, 2000. Under his guidance, the 23-sport program has made a successful transition from the NCAA Division III to Division II. In fact, UCSD has surpassed all expectations in Division II, capturing women’s soccer national championships in both 2000 and 2001, and finishing in the top-10 of the Director’s Cup standings in four of its first five seasons. Edwards’ move to UC San Diego represented a homecoming, as he had previously served as Associate Athletic Director at UCSD from 1987 to 1993. He then took a position as Director of Athletics at East Stroudsburg University in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. During his seven-year tenure at the NCAA Division II institution, he served on numerous NCAA committees, including a 1999 appointment to the Division II Management Council. Edwards is also currently a member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Executive Committee. Edwards is a 1972 graduate of East Stroudsburg with a master’s degree in Physical Education and Sports Administration from the University of Massachusetts. In addition to East Stroudsburg, he has athletic administration experience at UMass, UC Davis, the University of Michigan, Drexel University and UC San Diego. While previously serving at UCSD, Edwards initiated the Triton Athletic Associates, the athletic department’s primary fund-raising source. Edwards now presides over a UC San Diego program which is recognized nationally for both its athletic and academic achievements.


COMMUNITY OUTREACH UC SAN DIEGO INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS The University of California, San Diego Department of Athletics is committed to actively participating in the community through a variety of outreach events and services. Student-athletes from 23 sports participate in a wide range of service and outreach programs in and around the San Diego area. In 2003-04 the Tritons began the “Team Up!” program. This program assists local elementary schools that do not have a physical education component in their current curriculum. UCSD student-athletes provide healthy physical activity and create an environment for elementary school students that foster positive thinking and team building. The program was run at the Del Mar Heights Elementary School in the morning hours prior to school starting and during the students’ lunch periods during the past two years. Triton student-athletes make the holidays brighter for 12 families in the San Diego area on an annual basis, providing a plethora of gifts and holiday cheer. Triton teams paired up and each tandem purchased presents, food, and goodies to deliver to their adopted family before the holidays. Families were selected by the Neighborhood House Association which runs the Head Start programs throughout San Diego County. Student-athletes contacted the families to find out what special presents the children wanted, as well as what sort of clothing or other needs could be met. Teams delivered the presents in person and spent time with the families, often playing games with the children. Families each received approximately $300-$500 worth of gifts, depending on the number of children. Presents ranged from a bike for one child to clothing and food for the parents. In conjuction with the California Collegiate Athletic Association as the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Triton student-athletes have gone to work to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in each of the last two years. The student-athletes held a bake sale during the Annual Sun God Festival on the UCSD campus. Each team brought baked goods for a sale in the evening prior to the festival’s main event. The goal at each CCAA member institution was to raise $1 per student-athlete. Triton student-athletes far exceeded this goal, raising over $1,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2005. Additionally, the Intercollegiate Athletics Department holds an annual Blood Drive to benefit the American Red Cross. All coaches, staff and out of season student-athletes participated in the blood drive, while those student-athletes who were in season recruited other students on campus to donate blood on their behalf.

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE / SPORTS MEDICINE UC SAN DIEGO INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS

Two integral parts of the UC San Diego athletic department are the Athletic Performance Program and the Sports Medicine Program, both of which provide a tremendous advantage to all 23 of the UCSD intercollegiate sports. The Athletic Performance Program is geared toward teaching each student-athlete how to achieve the highest level of athletic development through enhancement of all components of strength and conditioning. Athlete workouts are monitored and planned out by Matt Kritz, UCSD’s Director of Athletic Performance who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Triton athletics. Kritz represents the only full-time strength and conditioning coach in the entire CCAA. The Tritons work out in the RIMAC weight room that is over 12,000 square feet in size with state of the art equipment. The UCSD Athlete Performance Program is truly designed with the student-athlete’s enhancement in mind. Very few programs at the Division II level have such expertise and first class facilities at the disposal of the student-athlete helping to further distinguish the Triton Athletic Department as one of the premier intercollegiate programs in the country. The UC San Diego Sports Medicine Center is the hub for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic-related injuries suffered by Triton studentathletes. Under the supervision of head athletic trainer Marcia Klaiber MA, ATC and her staff, UCSD athletes receive the highest quality medical care and access to an extensive network of physicians and other medical specialists. Alongside Klaiber is assistant athletic trainer Kevin Messey MS, ATC, CSCS, who assists in every aspect of the training room.

The rest of the training room staff is comprised of two part-time ATCs and an average of 10 athletic training students (ATS). The UCSD athletic training room is a clinical site for San Diego State University’s accredited athletic training education program where some of the athletic training students fulfill their clinical experience. Additionally the UCSD Sports Medicine Center offers a wide variety of options for examination and rehabilitation. From acupuncture to a group of six highly specialized sports medicine, family practitioners and orthopedic surgeons, the UCSD training room has a multitude of options at your disposal to get you health and back on the field of competition in no time.

SAN DIEGO - AMERICA’S FINEST CITY UC SAN DIEGO INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS The UCSD campus is located in La Jolla, Calif., just minutes north of America’s sixth largest city, San Diego. Spanish for ‘the jewel’, La Jolla is one of San Diego’s first neighborhoods to be settled. The city of La Jolla has spectacular beaches and park areas that are popular for great diving, swimming, surfing, hiking, romantic sunset strolls, and family fun. La Jolla’s village area boasts a beautiful Mediterranean charm and a cool Southern Californian vibe, and rolls out the red carpet when it comes to it’s fine dining, theatre, cultural activities, boutique shopping, art galleries and fine lodging establishments.
