Encouraging More Adults to Swim

Mike Kazek Receives 2013 Kerry O’Brien Coaching Award

Generous coach grows program

Stuart Kahn , Head Coach, Davis Aquatic Masters | Vice Chair, Coaches Committee | May 8, 2014

Mike Kazek has shared his compassionate spirit for the sport of swimming with the California Maritime Academy Masters Since 2006. His volunteering for time and expertise as coach—even calling on his own financial resources to meet the immediate needs to the program—have impacted many lives. Mike is seen by many as coach and teacher, motivator and cheerleader, advisor and lobbyist, mentor and dear friend. By example, Mike has shown that one does not need a big pool, big team, or big paycheck to be considered one of the great success stories in Pacific Masters Swimming.
