My name is Michael Rourke, and I am the Head Aquatics Coach, as well as the Lifetime Nutrition and Wellness teacher here at Reagan High School; I love the idea of nutrition in performance and encouraging young individuals to find their creative side through food and wellness. This is my 7th year as a head high school coach and teacher; I spent a brief time at Granbury High School, and then I was the first full time head swim coach at Eaton High School in Fort Worth. I started my coaching career with summer league swimming as head coach of the Block House Creek Tidal Waves in 2010, and thus began my love of coaching and molding young individuals into the best versions of themselves. I have a passion for the sport of swimming, and I want to instill this love for the sport in anyone who enters my program.
I grew up in Cedar Park, TX and graduated from Vista Ridge High School. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos on scholarship as a track athlete, and graduated Suma Cum Laude in 2014 with my Bachelor's of Science in Exercise and Sport Science with a minor in Mathematics. In the Spring of 2018, I completed my Master's of Arts in Coaching and Athletic Administration. While swimming is my passion, I love all sports and encouraging individuals to find their passion. My goal as an educator is to help each individual that passes through my class be successful in anything they do and to become the best version of themselves.
