VARSITY HEAD COACH
Introduction from Coach Seidemann:
I am so excited to be your new Girl's Water Polo Head Coach!
I am originally from Northern California, I have been in Orange County for nearly 10 years now. I am currently living in Seal Beach with my sister, a teammate and my sweet puppy, Houston.
Let me tell you a little bit about my self. I come to you with an extensive water polo background playing and coaching at many levels. After attending high school in the East Bay, I competed at the collegiate level with Stanford University. After winning a National Championship in 2011, I took a leave of absence form Stanford to train with the USA Women’s National team. Since, I have trained and competed for two Olympic Games, winning gold in 2012 and 2016 and currently pursing my third Olympic roster and a chance at gold in 2021.
I have always loved coaching, dating back to teaching swim lessons with my summer rec team. In 2016 I joined a knowledgable staff at SOCAL Water Polo club, coaching their 14 and under youth girls and assisting with many other programs. At the same time, I accepted a position as an assistant coach at UCI, where I coached for two seasons.
In addition to my love for water polo, I am most passionate about supporting our youth as they learn and grow. I am currently a RISE Athlete Mentor, working with kids and young adults as they navigate their world and athletics. When my athletic career comes to a close I look forward to pursing a career in education. I currently hold a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and am working towards a Master’s in Educational Technology.
I look forward to meeting you all, supporting your daughters on their journey and becoming a part of the CdM family.
Go Sea Queens!
