Q & A with Coach Will
Q: How did you first start playing water polo?
A: I was introduced to water polo when my parents were looking for a sport to get me out of their hair and they found a Polo Bears flyer in Spruce.
Q: What is it about water polo that made you fall in love with the sport?
A: I love the water and the game is a fast and dynamic game which made me continue playing.
Q: What is your favourite water polo memory?
A: 2020 NCL Calgary tournament. We were major under dogs and put up good games that tournament.
Q: What made you want to be a coach?
A:Kids seem to like me for some reason (I think it's because I act like one). I also owe the water polo community so much and this is a great way to help it out. I enjoy being around young athletes and that is a good indicator to coach.
Q: Who was your most influential coach?
A: Chris Toy. He was able to have fun and joke with us while pushing each player to play better in the water. He was able to give you many pointers in practice that other coaches wouldn't think about.
Q: Who is an athlete you admire?
A: Weston Dressler. Playing football, where size matters, he shows that you don't need to be a giant to play. Always a fun player to watch and cheer for.
Q: What is your favourite quote?
A: "If you ain't first you're last". – Ricky Bobby
