BALTIMORE, Maryland, August 26. NORTH Baltimore Aquatic Club Head Coach/CEO Bob Bowman today announced that Keenan Robinson will return to the club as Director of Athlete Services.
Robinson served the 2013-2014 season as chief athletic trainer for the National Champion University of Michigan Wolverines. He was previously with NBAC for 3 years following a 5-year stint with Bowman and the Club Wolverine/Michigan programs overseeing all land based programs, athletic medicine and recovery modalities for NBAC. His broad base of expertise and certification makes him unique in world swimming.
“Keenan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program that is second to none “said Bowman. “No one in the world has his track record of excellence in aquatic strength coaching and athletic training.”
