The 1999 NCAA Men's Water Polo Championship was the 31st annual tournament to determine the national champion of NCAA men's collegiate water polo. Tournament matches were played at Canyonview Pool in La Jolla, San Diego, California during December 1999.


UCLA defeated Stanford in the final, 6–5, to win their sixth national title. The Bruins (22–3) were coached by Guy Baker and Adam Krikorian.

The Most Outstanding Player of the tournament was Sean Kern from UCLA. Kern, along with seven other players, comprised the All-Tournament Team.

Kern was also the tournament's leading scorer, with 8 goals.


Since there has only ever been one single national championship for water polo, all NCAA men's water polo programs (whether from Division I, Division II, or Division III) were eligible. A total of 4 teams were invited to contest this championship.
