Mike Travers is in his first season as an assistant coach at Army. Before arriving at West Point, he served an 11-year stint in a similar capacity at LIU Post down the road in Brookville, N.Y.
During his time at LIU Post, Travers helped several Pioneers earn All-America honors, and a plethora of his former swimmers won national championships in individual and relay events. He has focused on the sprinters in recent years, and has molded a number of Metropolitan Conference champions over the years. He coached a pair of swimmers to Metropolitan Conference Female Rookie of the Meet honors in 2004 and 2007.
Several of his former student-athletes went on to qualify for the USS Short Course Nationals. The Pioneers excelled in the classroom during Travers' tenure, as LIU Post was named a CSCAA Scholar All-Academic Team eight straight years from 2004-11.
In 2006, Travers established the Masters Swim Program at LIU Post, and guided the program since its inception.
