My name is Michael Rourke, and I am a head high school swim coach and a triathlon coach. I have been coaching swimming for over 10 years and triathlon for 3 years. I have a Bachelors in Kinesiology and Masters in Exercise and Sports Science, and working with athletes is a passion that I have had for as long as I can remember. I firmly believe that a positive coaching/athlete relationship is the key to performance and development, and I look forward to helping athletes achieve their goals!
