Coach Mike grew up swimming for the Barracudas, MHS, a local club team, and was the captain of the Kutztown University team.  His first job was lifeguarding and teaching lessons at the Braddock pool, and he has coached on and off since.  Now that Coach Mike and his family have relocated back to Middletown, he is looking forward to his two sons sharing the same positive experience and memories the Barracudas gave him.  Mike will coach the 11-12 group and assist with the 13-older swimmers.
