When Beth Ballard, the previous Shores athletic trainer, left her position due to her pregnancy with her first child, Mike Shuster filled that vacancy.

Shuster attended Brighton High School, which is located almost three hours east of Muskegon. After high school, Shuster went to Grand Valley State University, bringing him even closer to his current destination at Shores.

Being an athletic trainer attracted Shuster’s attention, he said, because this job doesn’t require sitting in a cubicle all day, performing the same tasks on a daily basis.

“I did not want a desk job where I just sat in a cubicle doing the same thing every single day,” Shuster said. “My job is different everyday, and I get to work with athletes, which has always been a goal of mine.”

After college, Shuster moved to Lakeside and made the 30-minute trek every day to serve as athletic trainer at Ravenna High School until he transferred to Shores.

“I came to Shores because I wanted to be closer to home,” Shuster said. “I also was interested in this opportunity to grow as a trainer at a bigger school with a more established athletic program.”
