Coach Chick grew up in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and began his wrestling in high school, where he competed under National Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee, Coach Doug Roper. He wrestled briefly in college and then hung up his shoes for almost 20 years until his oldest son dragged him back onto the mat. Chick has continued to follow the sport closely over the years, and he attributes much of the success he has had in his life to the strong lessons he learned through wrestling. Because of his gratitude for the sport’s meaningful role in his own life, Mike’s number one goal as a coach has nothing to do with winning, but rather to use wrestling as a tool to build character in our kids.
Coach Chick is fortunate to spend his days doing work that he feels very called to do, as a criminal trial lawyer in both Virginia and Federal courts. He is an avid rock climber and parkour athlete, and has appeared on multiple seasons of the hit NBC television show American Ninja Warrior, holding the distinction as a national finalist for both the NBC show and the National Ninja League.
Mike lives in Arlington, Virginia with his wife and three children, Parker (9), Campbell (6) and Billie (2). He is also very active at his church, Grace Community Church, in Arlington, VA, where has served as a guitarist, singer and worship leader, as well as a community group leader.
