MIKE TIMPERIO “Coach Mike” began swimming competitively at age ten with the Aqua Colts. Mike continued his swimming in High School. He continued his love of the sport throughout his career in the U.S. Marines. “Swimming is part of who I am, it gave me direction as a child and I hope to offer the same to other kids”. Mike's experience in swimming in his youth is what still inspires him to offer other children the same opportunities.
Mike started the Frog Aquatics swim team in 2006. His goal was to provide a safe haven for kids to discover their athletic talents in an encouraging and supportive environment.
Mike’s goals are for the children to learn and develop their swimming technique, commitment, and self-confidence. Mike creates an atmosphere where the students continuously improve and learn through structured practice with consistent feedback so they can not only set goals but achieve their goals.
Many of Mike’s students have gone on to receive scholarships for their swimming ability.
