When I started
I started swimming when I was 7 years old, beginning swimming competitively those 25 yard lengths of the pool. =)
How I started
I started because it was one of those sports my parents encouraged me to try out. I just fell in love with it. There was never any other sport or activity that I got in to after I started swimming at 7. I tried other sports but this was the one that really stuck with me, water polo joining later on.
I have many accomplishments. I was an All American swimmer in high school, getting 2nd in the state my senior year. I also placed in the big tens when I was swimming for the University of Michigan. I have helped many people to date learn how to swim. I have had many start from the very bottom, not knowing anything about swimming, being terrified of the deep end and being able to help them get rid of that fear and reach their accomplishments. Helping people learn how to swim is really one of the greatest accomplishments I have ever had.
I started playing water polo when I was in 7th grade. I am now 24.
I started because of my background as a competitive swimmer. The two sports just go hand in hand very well. I gradually fell in love with sport and continued to play it for years after that. I continued on to play water polo in college at a varsity level.
Why I love it
I love it because it is such a team sport. It allows you to not only be very comfortable in the water but it forms bonds between teammates and friends that will stick with you forever. It is also a lot of fun to play!
How I stay motivated
I stay motivated playing water polo the same way I stay motivated to swim or work out in general. You just have to continually tell yourself that it is good for you and that you are helping yourself by doing some physical activity just a little bit every day. There are days that are tough and days that will be hard but you will recover and it will get better.
I have played on the varsity team in high school, at the varsity level at college as well as been a part of a national water polo team for the past 3 years. I have coached water polo for two programs. I am currently the head coach now for a high school team in the Lansing area. I have a lot of experience in the water as well as on the side lines coaching for water polo.
