Coach Micah

Micah comes to us from Kansas. When he was younger he had a fear of swimming and of deep water while in the military, he was able to overcome his fear. After the military, Micah took a step back and through continued practice, gained more confidence and comfort in the water. With that new found confidence, he’s now the instructor that he would have liked to have instruct him. 
 
Outside of the pool, Micah can be found enjoying the outdoors, running, and being an artist.
