Womens Water Polo
Support the Women’s Water Polo program on UCI Giving Day!

After winning the Big West Championship for two consecutive years, UC Irvine is looking to win the league's championship title for the third straight season to advance to the NCAA tournament in May.

UC Irvine defended their championship title last spring, defeating Hawai'i. This was the Anteaters eighth Big West title in program history and improved their Big West tournament record to 29-5.

Gifts to Women’s Water Polo provide direct support to the program and enable our outstanding Women’s Water Polo student-athletes to continue to excel at the highest level academically and athletically.

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration of supporting UCI Women’s Water Polo on Giving Day 2024.
