John Price

16U Boys Coach

​Personal Information: 

Born in Sacramento, CA to parents Anne Moore and Bob Price. I grew up just a stones throw away from Rio Americano High School where I eventually graduated in 2013. After high school, I attended the University of Pacific from 2013-2015. Transferred to Sacramento State where I am an honor student and expecting to graduate with a degree in Exercise Science in the spring of 2018. After graduating I hope to be accepted into a doctorate of physical therapy program where I will pursue my goal of becoming a licensed physical therapist. I am a huge Sacramento Kings fan. I don’t own my own car so you can often spot me showing up to practices on my bicycle. 

Water Polo Experience: 

I grew up playing a whole variety of sports and I excelled at swimming at very young age. I was introduced to the sport of water polo when I was 9 years old. Water polo was new to my family as my older sister was just starting to play water polo in her freshman year of high school. So my parents decided to sign me up for my first water polo practices at American River Water Polo Club’s Youth Clinics. I went on to play competitively for ARWPC’s 14u, 16u, and 18u teams. In my last few years playing for the club, our 18u team placed in the top 10 in multiple national tournaments. 

During my High School career at Rio Americano, I was a 4-time varsity athlete for both water polo and swimming. Our water polo team won 3 consecutive CIF titles from 2010-2012. In 2012 I was the Sac-Joaquin CIF Co-MVP. Following my senior year I was voted to the All-American 2nd team. 

After high school I played polo at the University of the Pacific. At UOP I was able to be part of a team that was a #1 nationally ranked team and ended up finishing as the runner-up in the 2013 NCAA Championship. In college I had the privilege of playing and training with some of the very best collegiate players in the nation. Our team featured several NCAA All-Americans and two future 2016 Olympians. 

Here at ARWPC is where my water polo journey began and where I have made so many memories and friendships. I am excited to be back with the club so that I can share my knowledge and love for the game with a new generation of ARWPC athletes.
