Michael Schuber

Head Coach

Email

Michael Schuber has been swimming since before he was born. In fact, the lifeguards gasped as his mother dove into the pool while 8 months pregnant with him. Michael grew up at the pool, and eventually joined The Woodlands Marlins summer league team. After a successful summer, he wanted to pursue swimming further, so he joined The Woodlands Swim Team, a USA Swimming Club Team. As an athlete he experienced multiple TAGS Team Championships, he experienced NCSA Junior Nationals, and as a team won the Texas High School Swimming Championship in 2004.


Michael coached multiple TAGS finalists while at The Woodlands Swim Team. He coached Trinity University’s swim team to three consecutive conference championships and its first-ever NCAA Champion in the 100 freestyle. He volunteer-coached at NC State helping them achieve a Men’s 4th place and a women’s 9th place team finish at the NCAA Championships. As an Assistant Coach, Michael also coached the University of Pennsylvania’s Men’s Swim team to its highest Ivy League Championship finish since 1971.

David P Houck

Assistant Coach

David first coached Georgetown Gold in 2004, back when it was the Aquatics of Georgetown. Currently he is the Masters Coach and works with different groups within the Texas Gold program.   

His first swim team, at age 6, was with the Braun Station Seagulls in San Antonio. David's first age group swim team was AAAA. After moving to Georgetown, David swam on the Aquadillos summer league team and was a captain on the Georgetown High School team. At that time, Georgetown lacked an age group team so he swam age group in Temple at TASC and the short lived Georgetown Area Swim team (GAS). At Trinity University he combined his years of competitive gymnastics with water and joined the diving team. He graduated in 2004 with a degree in Computer Science.

David has also coached the diving team at Southwestern University. He also coaches for the Aquadillos summer swim team. In his spare, time he does handstands and reads about computer security, but not at the same time.
