Former Jurupa Valley and Indian Springs high school water polo coach Chris Hulme was named Chino High boys’ water polo coach Monday.
“Coach Hulme’s initial goal is to get the student athletes to believe in themselves and create a positive environment for them to learn and succeed,” said Chino athletic director Mike Hinkle. “Positivity and self-belief are a huge foundation piece in his team strategy.”
Coach Hulme began coaching water polo in the 1990s as an assistant at Esperanza High in Anaheim, which won two CIF-Southern Section championships during that time. He also coached at Ramona, Jurupa Valley and Indian Springs high schools at the varsity and junior varsity levels, winning several league titles.
Most recently, Coach Hulme was the Riverside Water Polo club team coach, which took silver at the 2017 Junior Olympics in the 12U girls’ bracket.
