|Title:||Assistant Swim Coach|
Michael Schuber begins his first season as the assistant coach for the Trinity Tigers men’s and women’s swim teams.
Before joining the Trinity staff, Coach Schuber had been a coach of The Woodlands (Texas) Swim Team, a premier club organization, since August 2011. He also was a swim instructor and coach at the Houston-area FINS (Fun in Swimming), from May 2010-July 2011. Coach Schuber is a 2005 graduate of The Woodlands High School.
Coach Schuber earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the University of Hawaii in 2009, and graduated with a 3.48 grade point average. Coach Schuber was a varsity swimming letter winner for Hawaii in 2007 and 2008. He also was a Psychology Honor Society member, and was a teaching assistant for a women’s studies course.
He is currently working on a master’s in physical education, online through the University of Houston, and will receive the degree in the summer of 2013.
Coach Schuber estimated he has taught between 2,000 and 2,500 hours of swim lessons with people of all ages, abilities, and faculties, along with coaching three club swimming seasons.
He had this to say about student-athletes and swimmers: “Every individual athlete has a unique prescription for success that must be formulated and actualized, in order to reach their genetic potential. There are certainly more important aspects to college than sport, but I believe life is worth swimming. Over time, the benefits garnered during competitive swimming are eventually realized by swimmers.”
