For Love of Water Polo Staff

Michael Varela – Water Polo Director , 18U Head Coach

Michael Varela took over the LA84 La Mirada Water Polo Team in 2004. The summer only program brought a lot of athletes into the sport, so many that year around water polo was in demand. Coach Varela coached at La Serna High School as an assistant from 2005 – 2008 and during that time took over Lancer WPF. With the desire to create an open club to serve the community at large Coach Varela founded FLO Water Polo Club when joining the Troy High School staff from 2008 – 2012. From 2009 – 2016 Varela served as the head of aquatics at Fullerton High School and moved FLO Water Polo Club to Fullerton College.

Michael Cingari – Goalie Trainer

Coach Cingari currently is a student at Cal State University Fullerton. As an athlete Coach Cingari was a goalie for Tesoro High School Water Polo, where he assistant coached as an alumni. Coach Cingari’s main focus at practice is our goalies. He is there to assure that our goalies have warm outs, work outs, and tips tailored to their specific needs at practice and games. He is an invaluable asset as our goalies have grown tremendously under his tutelage thus far. The goalies are loving the attention and I’m sure any new goalies out there would love more local goalie training regularly.

Joseph Hermosillo as an athlete he played at Sonora High School then Cypress College. He was a tremendous Center Defender his whole career including college water polo.
