Meet our resident Bio-Kinetics guru… Coach Mike da Silva!!!
BSc (Hons) Biokinetics

Strength and Conditioning Coach

Michael da Silva completed his Bachelor of Science degree in 2008, majoring in Human Physiology and Human Movement Science before completing his Honours degree in Biokinetics (University of the Witwatersrand). Having always been involved in sport, a major knee injury forced him to put his rugby career on hold and look at alternatives. He stuck with his passion and that key moment led to this particular career path.

Michael is currently the Strength and Conditioning Coach of Moroka Swallows Football Club, while he also uses his background in Biokinetics to oversee the rehabilitation of the players back onto the playing field. He has previously been involved with the South African National Football Team (Bafana Bafana) as well as Bidvest Wits FC, Parktown Boys High and the SA Men’s Maccabi Football Team.

In addition to the rehabilitation work that Biokineticists specialise in, Michael has gathered great experience in the Exercise Physiology and Sport Science aspects of professional sport where teams and individuals are searching for very specific factors in order to give them the competitive edge in elite competition. Assessing and analyzing an athlete or team is vital in order to implement the correct sport specific conditioning for athletes of all levels to reach their potential and that is where Michael focuses much of his attention.
