Mark Anderson, a renowned swimming and water polo coach, has been coaching for over 30 years in Marin County. He is Head Coach of the 25-time Marin Swim League Champions Sleepy Hollow Swim Team and also serves as the Co-Head Coach and founder of SHAQ Water Polo Club. Previously, Coach Anderson led Drake High School Water Polo to seven MCAL Championships, and in the 2017 and 2018 academic years, 36 of Mark’s athletes went on to play for Division I colleges and universities. Coach Anderson was an All-American water polo player at College of Marin.
In 2014, Coach Anderson was inducted into the Marin County Athletic League Hall of Fame for Coaching and brings with him not only a history of success at building programs, but also a strong commitment to building community. Mark's focus is always on the overall health and well-being of his athletes. “We don’t talk about winning,” he is often heard saying to athletes and parents. “We talk about taking care of the kids by showing them what hard work, accountability, dedication, good sportsmanship, and team unity look like, and the winning often comes out of that.”
Coach Anderson and his wife Julie both grew up in Marin and are local residents of Sleepy Hollow.
