Mike Fones Head Coach

This summer will be Coach Mike’s eighth season with the Frogs. He coached the team for six seasons a few decades ago and returned in 2016. A lifelong swimmer, Mike began swimming in the NVSL for Fairfax Villa, then the Country Club of Fairfax. He swam for one year at William and Mary and has also swam Masters. In addition to coaching the Frogs, Mike coaches for the Mason Makos club team and Robinson High School. This season, Coach Mike hopes that each swimmer can improve their technique in all strokes, which will allow them to increase speed efficiently. Additionally, he hopes each swimmer ends the summer fitter and with a sense of accomplishment. Fun Fact about Coach Mike – his golden retriever’s name is Dallas. That might have something to do with his favorite football team…
