The head varsity coach for both boys’ and girls’ water polo at Webb, Tom MacKinlay knows a little something about water sports.

He earned All League honors in swimming during his junior and senior years at Rowland High School, played one season of water polo at Mt. San Antonio College, was named to the All Conference team and voted Defensive Player of the Year.

His coaching career includes more than a dozen championships with high school swim and water polo teams in California.

Coach MacKinlay uses his own experience to help his teams at Webb. “As a young player, I was told you can only control two things: attitude and enthusiasm,” MacKinlay says. “Once I began coaching, this became the cornerstone of my coaching philosophy … When I first started coaching I wanted to be the great motivator. In those early years I wondered why I seemed only to reach certain team members, and then I realized what the old coach had always known: Some kids need a pat on the butt while others need a kick.”
