Our coaches and staff are the foundation of our program and are here to support our swimmers and our families. Nothing has a greater influence on the experience and progression of our swimmers than the excellence of our coaches. These individuals are certified through the American Swim Coaches Association, USA Swimming and/or the YMCA of the USA and are professionals within the sport.

If you have questions regarding training, meets and/or team events, please contact your family center coach at one of the emails listed below and schedule a time before or after practice to talk. For the purpose of allowing our coaches to ‘coach’, we ask that parents do NOT approach the coaches during practices, meets or anytime they are engaged with swimmers.

For all questions relating to the ‘dry side’ of the team, (such as fees and policies), please visit our Contact page.

Mike Brady
Executive Director of YCF Swim Team
Email

Mike came to YCF in the fall of 2014 from the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina (TYDE), where he took over their three site program of 180 swimmers and developed it into a ten site powerhouse of 500+ swimmers. Prior to serving as Director & Head Coach for TYDE, he led the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids (RAYS) to elevated success in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Mike also spent time previously coaching in Central Florida with a brief stint at Trinity Prep in Winter Park. His accolades over his two+ decades on a pool deck have been at all levels, (including club, high school, disability and open water), and have produced athletes who have qualified for the US World Championship Team, US Junior National Teams, an Olympic Trials finalist and multiple YMCA National Champions. Mike returned to Orlando with his wife, Kelly, and their three children, Shea, Liam and McKenna.
