Experienced and novice athletes alike are encouraged to join the program.
Coach Clark Barry will join Roosevelt for the 2018 season. Clark grew up in Fullerton, Calif., and began playing water polo at age 12. He played for Troy High School and SoCal Water Polo Foundation during his high school years. He walked on as a goalkeeper for the University of Southern California and was part of four national championship teams. After moving to Seattle, Clark began coaching for Rain City Water Polo.
