About the ball cap coach

A little insight.


Mike Cooke currently resides in Ottawa Ontario, The Nations Capital. He spent his younger years enjoying the outdoors in Aylmer Quebec. Mike was always a very curious individual he loved hunting and fishing, he found a wonderful respect for nature and all it has to offer us, the consummate outdoors-man. Wisdom is an amazing result from constantly seeking and journeying. 

Mikes first job, where he learned the value of a dollar and what it meant to trade one’s personal time for the monetary benefits of finance, was a construction job working with his fathers’ best friend. This led to added stress on Mike to preform well and consistently as not only was he trying to impress his new boss, he knew his actions and habits both good and bad were all being reported back to his father. Having been instilled with a fond respect for father and family at a young age Mike felt the pressure.

As Mike progressed through his younger years and into his 20s, he decided economics was where he was going to place his focus. The intention was to use his new knowledge in the field of sales or teaching. It was at this time that Mike took a part time job in the kitchen at one of Ottawa’s local restaurants Broadway Bar and Grille, and if you’ve ever been to Ottawa you would now be familiar with this little chain that has forever expanded, more on that later. 

Mike quickly fell in love with the family and camaraderie that is the restaurant industry and realized his part time job to help pay for school was growing into something of a passion.  Since we’ve already addressed the perpetual curiosity that Mike Cooke posses, he started asking himself and his professors what this course really was all about. A general understanding of life and how things were starting to change in our society had Mike quickly assessing that his time was much better spent getting real life experience in his budding new passion which was Broadway, encompassing his preexisting passion of helping people.

It was at this time that Mike opted out of the Educational System and started in on what would become a beautiful future. Mike worked his way up from serving to bar tending, management and then in 2008 he bought a piece of the pie, Ownership being the ultimate goal up until this point had Mike asking, “what’s next?” Well the answer to that turned into Expansion. Mike along with a few of the other owners made some very nice growth changes to the chain over the coming years, culminating in Mike Opening and owning a brand-new franchise location.

With all this taking place seemingly quick, Mike also found time to fall in love. His beautiful girl friend Caroline became his Beautiful Wife in 2010. Being Mike and wasting zero time the wonderful couple welcomed the most beautiful set of Twin girls, Emma and Sienna later that year.

Mike has spent the better part of the last decade homing in on his business acumen while perusing his passion of helping people through their toughest challenges. He has always put the needs of the many before his. He possesses one of the purest hearts you will likely encounter in your travels and he is very dedicated to not only his own growth but collectively the growth of all those interconnected with him and his life.  He will also happily lend an ear to anyone talking almost any sport and specially stats. Don’t get him started if you’ve got a busy day.
