Meet the Coaches

Mike Fountain

Hi, I'm Mike Fountain the lead coach of Speed Development Project. 

I'm a level 3 Event Group Coach in both Sprints and Endurance. I'm a licenced and qualified Physical Preparation (Strength and Conditioning) coach. I am also a coach education tutor for Athletics NI. 

I mainly work with sprinters and team sport athletes/players and coaches who want to improve their speed, agility and overall game speed. I also work with athletes/players following injury to assist in their rehabilitation and return to play training.

The athletes from my sprint groups have achieved great success and include Irish internationals, Irish champions, Irish junior Internationals, NI & Ulster champions and many podium medalists. 

I enjoy figuring how best to help athletes and sports people enhance their athleticism so as to play their sport at the highest levels possible.
