Masters Coach Michael Roysner

Michael learned how to coach right here at CIRC as a part time summer coach.  Michael is also the womens novice coach  at UCSB. Michael graduated from UCSB in 2021 with a B.A. in Political Science.

Michael brings with him interdisciplinary coaching experience from over the past 5 years as both a swim instructor at Los Angeles Pierce Community College and as a rowing coach at the Channel Islands Rowing Club. Michael is thankful for the opportunity to give back to the program that he started in, and is looking forward to fostering a space on the team for new rowers to grow and thrive.

I was born and raised in Greece. I was a member of the Greek Jr. National Team and competed in World Championships. In preparation for the 1992 Olympics, I was coached by two very successful coaches at the time, Penny Chuter (Steven Redgrave’s coach) and Thor Nilse. I completed the Level 3 USRowing Coaching Education in 2023. In the last few years, I helped a lot of Master Rowers with their training. I was the first person to row and start a team in the Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, California. Rowing is my passion.
