Coaching Staff

David Houck, Head Coach

David began coaching the age group team Aquatics of Georgetown (now called Texas Gold Georgetown) in 2004. He started coaching the masters team shortly after that. He enjoys helping both new and experienced masters have fun while reaching for their goals.

His first swim team, at age 6, was with the Braun Station Seagulls in San Antonio. David’s first age group swim team was AAAA. After moving to Georgetown, David swam on the Aquadillos summer league team and was a captain on the Georgetown High School team. At that time, Georgetown lacked an age group team so he swam age group in Temple at TASC and the short-lived Georgetown Area Swim team (GAS). At Trinity University he combined his years of competitive gymnastics with water and joined the diving team. He graduated with a degree in Computer Science.

David has coached the diving team at Southwestern University, Texas Gold Georgetown, and the Aquadillos summer swim team. In his spare, time he does hand stands and reads about computer security, but not at the same time.

Michael Schuber, Assistant Coach

Michael Schuber has been swimming since BEFORE he was born. In fact, the lifeguards GASPED as his mother DOVE into the pool while 8 months pregnant with him. Michael grew up at the pool, and eventually joined The Woodlands Marlins summer league team. After a successful summer, he wanted to pursue swimming further, so he joined The Woodlands Swim Team, a USA Swimming Club Team. As an athlete he experienced multiple TAGS Team Championships, he experienced NCSA Junior Nationals, and as a team won the High School Swimming Championship in 2004.

While the success as a team was unforgettable, Michael now finds value in other experiences. Like how one summer, he saved an elderly lap swimmer who had a stroke in the pool. There were 100 swimmers in the pool, and Michael was the one who spotted her odd behavior and went for help. She recovered and thanked him for his vigilance in youth.

Michael went on to swim for the University of Hawaii at Manoa Valley in Honolulu, Hawaii where he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology. Michael’s career goal was to earn a P.h.D. in psychology and unravel the inner workings of the brain. In that aim, he embarked on teaching swimming lessons for applied psychology experience with children. Michael helped hundreds of young children and adults overcome their fears of the water and taught the skills necessary to enjoy swimming. As the swimmers got faster, Michael had even more fun teaching them. After more than 2000 hours of teaching lessons in the water, he began coaching full-time from the pool deck.

Michael coached multiple TAGS finalists while at The Woodlands Swim Team. He coached Trinity University’s swim team to three consecutive conference championships and its first-ever NCAA Champion in the 100 freestyle. He volunteer-coached at NC State helping them achieve a Men’s ACC Team Championship, a women’s ACC Team runner-up, and a Men’s 4th place and women’s 9th place team finish at the NCAA Championships. Michael also coached the University of Pennsylvania’s Men’s Swim team to its highest Ivy League Championship finish since 1971.

In his free time, Michael enjoys masters swimming, weightlifting, watching NBA basketball, and gardening.
Michael resides in Leander with his wife Courtney. They are thrilled every single day to live and raise their 1 year old daughter Amelia amongst family.
