Q & A with Coach Hazel

Q: How did you first start playing water polo?

A: My mom was watching the Olympics and decided to sign me up for a riptides camp.

Q: What is it about water polo that made you fall in love with the sport?

A: I love the challenge and how close you become with everyone on the team.

Q: What is your favourite water polo memory?

A: At provincials we beat the team that beat us every game that season by 8+ goals! I was hugging my friends/teammates and crying.

Q: What made you want to be a coach?

A: I want to make sure that everyone who try’s waterpolo has as great of an experience as I do, and to share everything that I have learned with new Edmonton athletes.

Q: Who was your most influential coach?

A: Kenedy Schoepp, I was very fortunate this season to have Coach Kenedy coach me for Polotides, Tsunami, and Team Alberta. Coach Kenedy is the coach that is there for you in and out of the pool. When coaching she doesn’t sugar coat anything and will coach you so you can improve. And she gave me my nickname!

Q: Who is an athlete you admire?

A: Emma Wright

Q: What is your favourite quote?

A: “Taking a challenge is a lot like riding a horse, isn’t it? If you’re comfortable while doing it, you’re probably doing it wrong” -Ted lasso
