Michael Williams

Assistant Coach

Email

Michael started swimming when he was 10 years old, for Sun Valley Swim Team. Three years ago he switched to Rancho to join his friends and has loved the club ever since. Michael has been a swimmer, junior coach, and this will now be his first year as Assistant Coach. His passion for swimming did not truly develop until his last years of high school, and so at the last minute he decided to opt out of CU Boulder to attend Diablo Valley College and pursue swimming. Michael hopes to transfer and swim in college if the opportunity comes his way.  He is looking forward to a fun summer and we are very excited to have him join our team of Assistant Coaches this season!
