#coachmikepodcast episode 54

I skipped the intro today to get right into the podcast because of the stimulating discussion. Today I've got a round table featuring Chris Stone of Acadia University, Don Burton of the University of Guelph, Ken Fitzpatrick of The University of Western Ontario and Tom Rushton of the Montreal Training Centre. Together we discuss the hot topic of CIS University recruitment of swimmers and some of the reasons that we cannot echo what the NCAA has in place... time for a new structure..?


We also touch on the cancellation of Swimming Canada's Training Centre in Montreal with Tom Rushton, who is directly affected.

As these are all hot topics, the podcast is a little longer (almost 40min) so my apologies for the length, but I promise you, it's not boring!

#coachmikepodcast episode 53

I'm back. This time I thought it would be fun to get a little post-modern; we're listening to an interview I did with Noemie Thomas for Swimming World News. I play the entire audio segment of the interview including the set up and he errors. I thought it would be kind of cool for everyone to hear how I do these interviews. Check it out; it's kind of cool. 


I have a lot of cool interviews on the way so stay tuned. More regular podcasts coming...

#coachmikepodcast episode 51

My Guest this time is member of Team Canada, The Vancouver National Training Centre & UBC Dolphins, Noemie Thomas. Noemie talks about her approach to racing, what she brings to Team Canada, her experience at FINA World Championships, her very positive relationship with another top butterflier in Canada and her relationship with her new coach (Tom Johnson) and her teammates.


Noemie was a joy to interview and is every bit as pleasant and down to earth as you've probably heard, but do not let that confuse you: she is as tough as they come!

#coachmikepodcast episode 50

No intro again today... still working somethings out so you'll just have to settle for jumping right into the action.


My guest today is Head Coach of Team Canada & VAS, Randy Bennett. Randy talks about Team Canada's performance at #BCN2013, about Canada's future prep for April Trials & what Canada needs to do to move ahead. Please excuse the Scooby Doo music in the background... my children like it loud.

Okay, I lied... I didn't take a hiatus... but I'm totally going to now... trust me...

This week, I visit Dr. Greg Wells at his office at the University of Toronto to get the truth about lactate clearance and how warm down can affect it.

Also, Swim Canada's Junior National Coach, Ken McKinnon, joins me to announce the new initiatives replacing North America Challenge Cup.

#coachmikepodcast episode 47

My guest this week is Lance Cansdale, head coach of the Dal Tigers and Team Leader for Team Canada at FISU Games in Kazan Russia. Lance talks about returning to coaching after a 2 year hiatus, his role as Team Leader at FISU and the games themselves.  Pretty good interview - done at 7:30am my time (3:30pm in Russia) - I would have kept him longer but my kids woke up and were too noisy. Sorry folks.

#coachmikepodcast will be on hiatus until August due to the busy 3 week period of Senior Nats, Age Groups and the travel involved. Hopefully the archives, my blog & Twitter account will tide you over until then.
