A futures trader based in Glendora, California, John Waring supports many local educational, health, and environmental charities. He is a regular donor to the University of La Verne’s golf team, which plays just minutes from his Glendora home.
In the spring of 2013, the University of Laverne’s Leopards will welcome head coach Chris Davis, who hopes to lead the team to a seventh consecutive conference championship. The 2013 team will include many members of the 2012 championship team, including the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Player of the Year for last year’s season. The team also welcomes back three sophomores and one junior. One of these, a current sophomore, has earned a ranking of 22 at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Championships while another played on the SCIAC Championship team as a freshman. A third earned induction to the All-SCIAC team in the spring of 2012.
This year’s team will include 11 players competing under the direction of its head coach. The school plays within the NCAA’s Division III and reports to college athletic director Julie Kline. One of seven spring sports in the school’s athletic department, golf will begin its season at the SCIAC’s Empire Lakes event.

A lifelong sports fan, John Waring plays a variety of sports during his youth in Glendora, California. As an adult, he has spent time traveling to some of the most famous baseball stadiums in the United States, among them the Los Angeles Angels spring training facility in Tempe, Arizona.
The Angels have held spring training at the Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe since 1993. Operated by the City of Tempe Parks and Recreation Department, the stadium’s seating capacity is 9315, which includes lawn seats, suites, temporary bleachers, and seating for individuals with disabilities. Since extensive renovations in 2005, the new stadium includes six and a half practice fields, as well as the main Gene Autry Field, named after the former Angels’ owner. Located conveniently near Interstate 10 and Highway 60, Tempe Diablo Stadium is only ten minutes from Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, making it easily accessible for visitors to the city.
