Michael Collins has been the Nova Masters Head Head Coach since November 2000. He is also the Head Coach at Multisports Orange County. Prior to these positions he coached at UCLA for four years and the Davis Aquatic Masters for 8 years. He has an extensive background in coaching swimmers and triathletes of all ages and abilities. Additionally, Collins travels around the country to coach swimming, triathlon, and running clinics. Although his main background was in swimming, he has taken many of the concepts used in swimming technique, drills, and interval training and applied them to running and cycling as well. Collins continues to compete in triathlons, running events, swimming events (both in the pool and open water), and road & mountain cycling. In triathlons he races from sprint to half Ironman distances. He often wins his age group and finishes as one of the top overall amateurs as well. He was the 2002 World Aquathlon amateur champion in Cancun (2.5K Run 1K Swim 2.5K Run). In addition to coaching and racing, Collins is a well known author. His articles have appeared in SWIM magazine, Swimming Technique, TRIATHLETE magazine, Triathlon Today, American Swimming, and many other national publications.
