The Athletic Department is thrilled to introduce and welcome back home Travis Bouscaren ’14 as the head boys’ water polo coach for the 2020-21 school year.
During Travis’ four-year Andover career, Bouscaren thrived as a three-sport athlete in water polo, swimming and crew. As a four-year varsity member of both the water polo team and swim team, Bouscaren, a two-year water polo captain led his team to its first-ever NEPSAC championship where he was named MVP of that tournament. Following graduation from Andover, Travis was selected for the USA Water Polo Youth National Team.
During the winter season at Andover, Travis was a member of the 4-year NEPSAC undefeated Big Blue swim team and earned All-American honors in the 4x100 relay at the Eastern Championships. Travis also rowed crew his first two years and made the varsity boats during his lower year.
In the fall of 2014, Travis enrolled at Brown University (Providence, RI) where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience while playing Division I water polo all four years. As Brown’s water polo captain during his senior year, Travis was honored to be recognized by the Association of College Water Polo Coaches as an All-American Honorable Mention.
Throughout his collegiate career, Travis also volunteered as an EMT for the Brown Emergency Medical Services and was a 2-year member of the varsity swim program. Always at home in the pool, Travis was an assistant coach during the Brown Water Polo Summer Camps.
Following graduation from Brown University, Travis went to Durham University in Durham England to get his 1-year Master’s degree in Medical Anthropology and here too, played Water Polo for the university. Excited to give back to the community that inspired him to be who he is today, Travis brings lots of energy to the poolside along with numerous years of top-level playing experience that he is excited so share with the team!
